Julian Assange is considering filling in for conservative commentator Sean Hannity during a future episode of the latter’s widely listened radio show, the WikiLeaks publisher said Wednesday.
Mr. Hannity offered the radio gig to Mr. Assange during a public Twitter exchange on Wednesday, and the WikiLeaks chief told CNN afterwards that he hadn’t ruled it out.
“I’m looking into it,” Mr. Assangetold CNN over Twitter. “My physical circumstances means that nothing is easy.”
“It is a good sign that Sean Hannity is willing to have someone best known for his work on freedom of expression and exposing war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan host his mostly conservative audience,” Mr. Assange added, according to a copy of the exchange released through his personal Twitter account Thursday.
The WikiLeaks chief piqued Mr. Hannity’s interest earlier this week after tweeting about the possibility of hosting a program from his residence within Ecuador’s Embassy in London.
