TCM's Guest Host for July 2016

So somebody posted over at the TCM boards that TCM announced there's going to be a guest host on TCM in July for Robert Osborne. On Friday and Saturday nights, Dave Karger, a writer for Entertainment Weekly and a reporter for NBC's Today show, will be handling the hosting duties.

I presume there will be whoever is doing the spotlight either one or two nights a week with Ben Mankiewicz picking up the slack the rest of the nights. Either way, Robert Osborne should probably just call it a career. As I've said several times the past few months, the man is now 84 years old and more than beyond the age where nobody would have a problem with it if he just decided to say he'd prefer to spend the rest of his life doing whatever. That having been said, he probably likes doing the wraparounds for TCM. A lot of us movie fans would love the opportunity to do them if only for a night, not that we'd be any good.
