Larry King Retiring, Leaving CNN Show

Larry King is leaving CNN. Larry King's retirement comes at a time where his personal life was under a great deal of scrutiny, after his eighth wife filed for divorce after King allegedly had an affair with her sister. The couple have since reconciled.

In addition, ratings of Larry King Live have dropped over 40% in the most recent year. This coupled with his age and tumultuous personal life place him in a situation where he feels it best to retire.

Larry King Live holds a record in the Guinness Book of World Records for the show that has been on the same station and at the same time slot for the longest period of time. The show has been running for some 25 years.

Larry King is 77, and isn't leaving the CNN network all together. Larry King will be featured in quarterly specials on the popular news station.

It's uncertain who will replace Larry King. One thing is for certain, no one will truly replace him. He's had a great run. One of the most memorable interviews I have ever seen on a news talk show was on Larry King Live. It was when Carrie Prejean went off on Larry, calling him "inappropriate."

Of course, there are likely far more memorable interviews from far more impressive people than Carrie Prejean - but that's the one that sticks in my mind the most.

Larry King will be missed, although his retirement and departure from Larry King Live will be understood by his fans.


  1. larry's a scumbag. he always has been from his days in florida with his gambling and boozing, borrowing money from people and never paying it back. he's a lowlife and i can't imagine the woman who would want to live with him, sleep with him, look at that face, the teeth, listen to that voice.
    he can move on to a job as host at Nate and Al's in Bev Hills where he already holds court with other alta cockers.
    no one's going to miss that bum.
    bring on joan rivers!
