It was the story that shocked the world when then 10 year old Natascha Kampusche was kidnapped and held as a sex slave in a dungeon for 8 years in Vienna, Austria. After having finally escaped, she would later discuss with the media her ordeal at the hands of Wolfgang Priklopil.
Now after one of the most bizarre abductions imaginable and about 2–1/2 years after her escape, Natascha Kampusche now has her own talk show, “Natascha Kampusch meets…”
VIENNA (Reuters) – Natascha Kampusch, the Austrian who spent eight years locked in a windowless cell after being abducted in Vienna, turns TV chat show host on Sunday when her debut program airs on national television.
In “Natascha Kampusch meets…” Kampusch, whose case returned to the spotlight after revelations that another Austrian woman spent 24 years locked in a cellar, interviews former Austrian motor racing star Niki Lauda, who comments they have both had extreme lives.
