John King the CNN anchor and former White House correspondent tells Marketwatch.com’s Jon Friedman what sets him apart from Lou Dobbs and how his show, debuting next year at 7pmET, will be different than Dobbs’s.

“I had and have a great relationship with Lou and wish him the best. I have to be me here. Lou passionately believed in advocacy journalism. I passionately believe in steering conversations, not shaping them. That makes us different — doesn’t make one right and one wrong.”

But most importantly, will we see the Magic Wall in King’s new show? “Of course you will,” King told Mediaite. “One of the things we think is very important is to use technology in ways to make information more accessible, understandable and interactive with our audience.”
