Rick Sanchez to Host South Beach-Set Syndicated Talk Show

Well, flappy mouthed TV anchor Rick Sanchez is not only back living in Miami, but he may be back on your TV screen next year. You can blame Gloria and Emilio Estefan. The power-couple is reportedly involved in a plan to launch a bi-lingual syndicated talk show shot in South Beach and hosted by Sanchez. May we suggest Sanchez's Syndicated Spanglish South Beach Show as a name?

Sanchez tells TV Newser that the new program will be shot in the Cardozo Hotel in South Beach, owned by the Estefans, before a live studio audience. The show will tape both English and Spanish editions and could be on air by fall 2012. Oh great, so South Beach's new Jackie Gleason is Rick Sanchez? Fantastic.

The show will be modeled somewhat after Live with Regis and Kelly, and Sanchez says he's looking for a "Latina Kelly Ripa" with national name recognition.

The announcement is the latest in Sanchez's return to the industry after he was fired by CNN in October for making remarks that erred a little too closely to being anti-Semitic.

Sanchez has also been announced as a color commentator for FIU football games, and is in talks with Miami-based MegaTV to create programing for the channel.

 You can demonize, Muslims, Mexicans and make the most racist comments towards Blacks, but how dare you say that Jews are running the media. I say good for him. In fact I'm going to tune into his show.

Sanchez has a problem. He just doesn't know when to shut his mouth. Even when he has absolutley nothing to say.

His former bosses made his point. I suppose the estefans are antisemitic too?He is still one in a million, chance of a lifetime in my book.

Who is the real Rick Sanchez?

Jews Control the Media?  Calls Jon Stewart a Bigot? Left the scene of the accident but before , yelled to bystanders and police that blood tests would be meaningless and would “hurt his public image?

never said Jews control the media:  http://friendsofricksanchez.co...

Did say Stewart was a bigot (Later apologized and Stewart accepted. In fact, Stewart said he should have never been fired)

Left the scene, yada, yada, yada.  The guy that he hit was high on coke, jumped out of a moving van, and ran across the street.  Sanchez was coming back from a Miami Dolphins football game and hit him.  He was never charged with leaving the scene of an accident, hit and run, or any of the other preposterous allegations.  Under Florida Law when you are in an accident and there are injuries, they take blood from you...and like probably most of the other 72,000 folks leaving the game, there was alcohol in his blood.   

The truth sucks for you huh?

You're from Miami and you're such an idiot you can't make it anywhere else?  Embarrassed yourself and failed miserably outside of your comfort zone?  You're a total schmuck?  No problem, you can always come back here to Miami, land of buffoons and douchebags.  Welcome home, asshole.
