"America's Got Talent" Judge Piers Morgan to Replace Larry King

| by Oh The Scandal

It’s official: Piers Morgan will step into Larry King’s shoes on CNN, the network announced today.

Former tabloid editor Morgan, currently a judge on America’s Got Talent, will take over King’s prime time slot with an as-yet-unnamed “candid, in-depth interview programme,” says CNN.

“I have watched Larry King Live for much of the last 25 years, and dreamed of one day filling the legendary suspenders of the man I consider to be the greatest TV interviewer of them all,” Morgan said.

The proverbial plug will be pulled on Larry King Live, which has aired for 25 years, in December.
