Alec Baldwin to sign off on podcast

Alec Baldwin is signing off from his critically acclaimed podcast as he prepares to launch his own TV talk show. The 30 Rock star and new dad has presented Here’s the Thing since 2011, interviewing guests including funnyman Chris Rock, singer Billy Joel, director Judd Apatow and fellow Hollywood stars Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner, Stacy Keach and Rosie O’Donnell.
The radio show regularly ranked in iTunes’ top 10 podcasts, but it will now be axed due to a lack of funding, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The actor has a new hosting venture on the horizon – he is set to star in his own weekly primetime series Up Late with Alec Baldwin, which will begin airing on America’s MSNBC network next month (Oct13).
