Anthony Scaramucci to Guest on Colbert's 'Late Show' Next Week

Posted: Updated:

CBS says Anthony Scaramucci will be a guest on Stephen Colbert's late-night show next week.

The network said Wednesday that Scaramucci will appear on Colbert's "The Late Show" on Monday.

The former White House communications director lost his job with President Donald Trump's administration July 31, after only 11 days in the job. His firing came after he gave an expletive-filled interview.

Scaramucci had been scheduled to make other public appearances, including at the Politicon political convention in Southern California, but the financier canceled.

Colbert's gleeful focus on the Trump White House has given his show a late-night ratings lead, and landing Scaramucci is a coup for the host.

Meanwhile, Scaramucci says his profanity-laced phone call that preceded his ouster was recorded without his permission.

But a representative for The New Yorker on Thursday notes that reporter Ryan Lizza wasn't required by law to get Scaramucci's consent to record the conversation.

Federal law permits taping telephone conversations if one party consents to the taping - in this case, Lizza. Some places require consent of both parties, but not Washington, D.C., where Lizza took the call.

Scaramucci used #lowlife to describe Lizza on Twitter on Wednesday. Scaramucci begins a media tour Sunday.
