At the end of June, Larry King announced that he was retiring his nightly talk show, Larry King Live. The plan was supposedly for him to sign off in September.
Now, it appears that CNN wants him to stay on a bit longer, until the end of the year. According to the New York Post, Piers Morgan is having a hard time obtaining a work visa. Morgan is a British journalist, judge of America’s Got Talent, and King’s supposed replacement.
As a British citizen, Morgan needs a special visa to be able to work in the US full-time. According to experts, those are getting harder to obtain, especially in a speedy manner.
King, who’s made it clear that Morgan wouldn’t be his first choice as a replacement, is reportedly pleased about the opportunity to extend Larry King Live for a bit longer.
What do you think? Do you think Piers Morgan would be a good replacement for Larry King?
WTF can you find someone else?? This show will fail. I will not watch it. Bye Larry.
I like Piers I think a lot of people will be turn off my “the mean” charactor he has to play on AGT. I was really hopeing they would have went with Joy Behar, maybe ever Rosie O’Donald.
Horrible idea that they’re giving it to piers morgan.
Would you give a reason, please, Phil?
