John McIntire, the former host of “NightTalk” on PCNC and a panelist on WQED’s “Off-Q” is launching a new talk show on Comcast’s On Demand feature. The first edition of “The John McIntire Show” will be available on Thursday.

McIntire says in his blog that the program is not going to be political, rather more entertaining, “although I suppose that remains to be seen.” The first episode features comedian Gab Bonesso (who also dates McIntire) as his sidekick, filmmaker Carl Kurlander and Cyril Wecht. It will also feature his “scintillating commentary” much like that which he did on “NightTalk”. 

A production schedule has not been determined, according to the Post-Gazette, but another episode is expected to be taped in March.
