Canadian network Vision TV has tapped Conrad Black (pictured) to co-host a new talk show with former CBC Radio exec Denise Donlon.

The specialty channel, owned and operated by Moses Znaimer’s Zoomer Media, plans 26 episodes of the talker, to feature the former Canadian media baron talking about current events, including ageism, the global financial crisis and politics.

The talk show, titled The Zoomer – Television for Boomers with Zip!, is slated to start airing in late spring 2013. In each episode, co-host Black will interview some newsmakers and close with an editorial.

Fellow host Donlon will lead the “Zoomer Round Table,” a discussion about current affairs, health and wealth. No international distributor has yet been signed to the Canadian series.
