Laura Ling to host E! Entertainment series

More than a year after being detained for 140 days in North Korea while on assignment, journalist Laura Ling is moving to E! Entertainment.

The journalist and author will host the network’s hour-long documentary series, “E! Investigates,” starting in December, according to a statement from the network.

Ling is expected to deep-dive into the “most important and controversial” topics, according to the network, particularly “stories and trends that are often overlooked or misrepresented in the media."

Her first episodes will tackle issues like the rise of teen suicides and the lives of military wives, which will respectively air on Wednesday, December 8 at 10 p.m. and Wednesday, December 15 at 10 p.m.

Ling, whose sister is journalist Lisa Ling, has recently worked on Current TV's weekly investigative program “Vanguard," and also served as the vice president of Current TV's journalism department. In March of last year, Ling was detained in North Korea when she was reporting on trafficking of North Korean women. She and Euna Lee were later freed with the aid of Bill Clinton in August, 2009.

    Great. Reward the person that lies. She illegally crosses a border into North Korea and is arrested. They release her with her promise to not talk about the episode, and she publishes a book about it. So we know she'll break the law and lie – great journalistic ethics.
