Sho Sakurai helps bring politics to youths

Arashi member Sho Sakurai has been chosen to help host NTV’s “ZERO x Senkyo 2007,” a special program airing on the 29th regarding the upcoming House of Councillors elections. This is the first time a pop idol will host such a program.

Sakurai already serves as a Monday caster on the network’s “NEWS ZERO” program, which airs on weeknights. This made him a perfect choice for a host in the eyes of the producers, who are hoping to reach out to politically apathetic youngsters.

The program is scheduled to air from 7:58pm to 2:00am. Although Sakurai will appear during the first half with the other hosts (including Shinsuke Shimada and Mao Kobayashi), his primary role will be to serve as the debate presenter during the program’s second half (starting around 11:45).
