Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has hinted he could be a guest host on a US radio show.
Assange said he was “looking into” featuring on a talk show hosted by Fox News Anchor Sean Hannity. However, Assange conceded this would be difficult owing to him living inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London, which he has not left for five years – “My physical circumstances means that nothing is easy,” he told CNN in a direct Twitter message.
He had first outlined his plans to take to the airwaves on Twitter, saying several US networks had suggested the idea…

Although Swedish prosecutors have dropped the investigation into rape accusations against Assange, if he steps outside Scotland Yard said they will arrest the Wikileaks founder for his 2012 breach of bail offence.
