Larry's Flea Market » Blog Archive » BREAKING NEWS!!!!!! LARRY KING RETIRES AFTER 25 YEARS ?


Written by admin on August 3rd, 2012

Larry King made it official Tuesday night: After 25 years of conducting high profile interviews on CNN, he will end his nightly show this fall. As King put it in a blog post, “it’s time to hang up my nightly suspenders.” The move will give ratings-troubled CNN another shot at trying to re-boot part of its prime-time lineup starting this fall. Make no doubt about it, CNN is now in a period of major re-invention. Here’s the explanation the 76-year-old cable TV pioneer posted on his blog at 7:10 pm Tuesday: Before I start the show tonight, I want to share some personal news with you. 25 years ago, I sat across this table from New York Governor Mario Cuomo for the first broadcast of Larry King Live. Now, decades later, I talked to the guys here at CNN and I told them I would like to end Larry King Live, the nightly show, this fall and CNN has graciously accepted, giving me more time for my wife and I to get to the kids’ little league games. I’ll still be a part of the CNN family, hosting several Larry King specials on major national and international subjects. I’m incredibly proud that we recently made the Guinness Book of World Records for having the longest running show with the same host in the same time slot. With this chapter closing 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.
