California lieutenant governor and professional handsome person Gavin Newsom will double as a host on Current TV beginning in May, the Times reports, joining former politicians at the network including Jennifer Granholm, Eliot Spitzer, and channel-founder Al Gore. Newsom might be the first to do both at the same time, but he'll donate his TV salary to charity.
