Evan Solomon, a former CBC personality who was fired over conflict-of-interest allegations, has landed a new job as the host of a political talk show on Sirius X-M Canada. The show will premiere tomorrow and follow the run-up to the federal election in October. John Lewis, the company's head of programming, says he didn't hesitate to hire Solomon despite the controversy. (Solomon anchored "Power and Politics" on T-V and CBC Radio's weekly program "The House" until he was fired in June amid allegations he used his position to broker lucrative art deals between a friend and wealthy interview subjects. He says he never intentionally used his position to secure deals.)
