Larry King's Son Scores a TV Gig

11/19/2009 2:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Getting a job in radio is child's play to Larry King's 10-year-old son -- because the kid just landed a phat TV job hosting a sports show on FOX Sports Net.

Larry King's Son
Larry tells TMZ Chance King recently penned a deal to host an upcoming TV show called "Kid Pitch" -- which revolves around youngsters shooting the breeze about all things baseball ... plus interviews with Major League Baseball players.

The show is set to start filming in February of next year -- and due to Chance's school schedule, we're told he'll have to hightail it to the set after his school day wraps.

We're also told Larry's 9-year-old son Cannon will make occasional appearances on the program -- which will be directed by "Best Damn Sports Show Period" alum Tom Arnold.

KID PITCH TO DEBUT THIS SUNDAY
A Baseball Show By and For Kids

HOLLYWOOD, CA -- With the words, "Pitchers and Catchers Report" ringing throughout the land of baseball this week, baseball's newest show, "Kid Pitch," debuts this Sunday, February 21, on the Fox Sports Network (FSN) at 10:30 a.m. (EST and PST). Check local listings.

Future Hall of Fame Manager Joe Torre will be the guest on the premiere, hosted by award-winning television star and stand-up comedian Tom Arnold. The show features the children of Larry King, Rodney and Holly Peete, as well as children from across the country. Rawlings Sporting Goods is a sponsor and will provide product for the show.

Produced by Hollywood legends Burt Sugarman and Mary Hart, the show looks at the National Pastime through the eyes of children. They will host guests on their set, fire questions, and receive reports from kid reporters Boston to Los Angeles. Through the use of new "Flip Cams," participation in the show is open to all children who can capture their baseball stories and send them to our Kid Pitch websites. ( www.kitpitchtv.com, www.twitter.com/kidpitch)

Larry King's sons Chance, 10, and Cannon, 9, are among the Hollywood hosts, as is RJ Peete, the son of football star Rodney Pete and actress Holly Robinson.

"Kid Pitch" was created by longtime Hollywood film producer Brad Wyman. Wyman is the son of Los Angeles legend Roz Wyman, who in 1957, as a 22-year-old City Council Member, wrote the letter to Walter O'Malley that brought Major League Baseball to the West Coast, further unifying the nation through baseball.

"Now we want to ensure that children throughout the country and the world not only enjoy baseball, but contribute to the discovering and telling of good baseball stories," he said.

I'm sure he got it based on talent the same way Tori Spelling "beat out" thousands of others auditioning for 90210 back in the day, right? You remember, based on her stellar acting skills...the audition people had "no idea" who she really was! Pfft. Like the previous poster said, "...it's who you know" (or are related to)...
