Live from Moscow, it's Patriarch Kirill.
Russian President Vladimir Putin seeks to charm his country and rattle the West with an annual call-in show broadcast live on television.
Now the head of the Russian Orthodox Church wants some time in the spotlight.
Patriarch Kirill will conduct a live, televised question-and-answer session on September 3, state news agency TASS reported.
The August 28 report said Kirill would do the show during a church congress on social ministry that will also be attended by government officials.
Unlike Putin's call-in show, which is carried by the main state channels, Kirill's is apparently to be broadcast live only on Soyuz, a church-affiliated channel.
But the program may fuel criticism from secular-minded Russians who say that Kirill often acts like a politician and lament the close ties between church and state, which have tightened under Putin and Kirill even though the constitution says Russia is a secular country.
Polls have shown that some three-quarters of Russians identify themselves as Russian Orthodox, but that only a small fraction attends church regularly.
Kirill, who has headed the church since 2009, gave his informal but clear support to Putin's campaign for a third Kremlin term in 2012, and Putin has held out the church as a bulwark of morality.
The services Kirill leads on Orthodox Christmas and Easter are shown on state TV, as are holiday addresses he delivers.
