March 5, 2012 - 12:16 PM

NEW YORK (AP) — Current TV is launching a morning talk block with live simulcasts of the radio programs "The Bill Press Show" and "The Stephanie Miller Show."

The TV version of Press' nationally syndicated radio program will air weekdays from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. Eastern time. The TV simulcast of Miller's show will follow from 9 a.m. to 12 noon Eastern time.

The program block will begin this Spring, the left-leaning political TV network announced Monday.

A liberal commentator, Press is a veteran of CNN's "Crossfire" and "The Spin Room." Miller is a liberal talk-show host and comedian.

Current TV chairman Al Gore says the pair will provide "smart, insightful news analysis."

The new programs join Current's prime-time slate anchored by "Countdown with Keith Olbermann."
