Gavin Newsom.JPGLt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, in addition to his limited duties at the Capitol, will become a cable talk show host next month.

"The Gavin Newsom Show," a weekly, hour-long program, will feature the former San Francisco mayor interviewing "notables from Silicon Valley, Hollywood and beyond," Current TV announced today.

"We've got Gavin: New show in May," the San Francisco-based network announced on its website. "The California lieutenant governor and former mayor of San Francisco brings his trail-blazing perspective to Current TV with a new weekly, hour-long show."

The announcement follows the network's recent split with Keith Olbermann. Newsom and Gov. Jerry Brown, both Democrats, have appeared before on the network's "The War Room with Jennifer Granholm," a show hosted by the former governor of Michigan.
