Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus to Host New Talk Show
A Different Spin with Mark Hoppus, a weekly platform for all things music, premieres on Fuse in September.
Mark Hoppus has a new bullet point for his resume: talk show host.
The Blink-182 bassist-vocalist has teamed with music TV network Fuse for a new show called A Different Spin with Mark Hoppus, which is slated to premiere this September. The new hour-long variety-esque show — featuring a co-host, which will be announced in the coming weeks — will cover music news, interviews with musicians and celebrities, exclusive performances, tours, and more.
“I am stoked to join the Fuse family and have a show where I can talk about a topic that I’m passionate about, music,” Hoppus said in a statement. “More importantly, I’m excited to force millions of people to watch me on a weekly basis on national television.”
