Former Australian Labor Party (ALP) Senator and Minister Graham "Richo" Richardson will discuss business, politics and current events on his new weekly talk show.

Described as a program that will prove it is all about who you know, Richo aims to give viewers an insight into the government's "corridors of power" and provide analysis of Australia's most pressing matters.

Viewers can expect a diverse range of guest appearances from various political and media figures as the program delves behind the scenes of the nation's political promises, stumbles and complete debacles.

With a focus on politics and analysis of the country's biggest issues, the show could fill the gap left by short-lived panel discussion show Hadley!, which was cancelled after just four episodes when host Ray Hadley resigned, reportedly due to under-resourcing and differences with staff.

The live one-hour talk show will be Richardson's first foray into television hosting, with the power broker saying "Politics doesn't have to be boring. There will definitely be serious issues that will need to be addressed but this show will be about informing and entertaining. It will be a mix of light-hearted commentary but with all the facts."

In the first weeks of the show, Richardson will discuss the New South Wales state election slated for March 26, which he believes is one of the country's most dramatic state elections.

Richo premieres 8pm Wednesday, February 23 on Sky News.

Former Labor Senator? That won't be a biased program at all.
