It’s the end of an era! After 25 years of Larry King Live, Larry King is leaving his CNN show in the fall. In a statement the veteran host explained, “I’m looking forward to the future and what my next chapter will bring, but for now it’s time to hang up my nightly suspenders.”
CNN heaped praised on the old dude as well, stating,”Larry King defined the art of the television interview. Having conducted nearly 50,000 interviews over 50-plus years in broadcasting, Larry deserves to take some time for himself and his family.”
King’s not done completely, though, as he’ll appear on specials once in a while. It feels like a good decision, with his personal life being the way it is. His wife Shawn Southwick was recently rushed to hospital due to an apparent OD. They’re also in the midst of salvaging their marriage. So a man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do. So, who’s going to fill his slot? Any ideas?
