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.
