Versatile Feminist Initiative spokeswoman Gudrun Schyman is the latest big name to join the ranks of television channel TV8.

The former left party leader has been named as the host of a new live discussion programme scheduled to begin airing in September.

"TV8 got in touch with me and presented this idea, which I thought sounded exciting. It will be strange to switch sides. It's usually me answering the questions; now I'll be asking them," Schyman told Resumé.

The newspaper also reports that the alcohol monopoly, equality and pornography will be among the topics up for discussion in the eight programmes so far slated for production.
