Its Official…Britsh import, Piers Morgan will take over for Larry King!!
According to RadarOnline,
CNN announced on Wednesday that British journalist Piers Morgan will indeed take over the coveted talk show slot vacated by Larry King – a move that RadarOnline.com was first to report on June 30.
“I am thrilled to be joining CNN, and very much looking forward to bringing my own style of interviewing to the world’s biggest, and best TV news organization,” Morgan said in a statement Wednesday.
Morgan, 45, was wooed by the Atlanta-based news empire to freshen up the void left by the outgoing King, whose sagging ratings and publicized marital problems reportedly hastened his departure from the network after 25 years there.
CNN president Jon Klein said in a statement that Morgan “has made his name posing tough questions to public figures, holding them accountable for their words and deeds.
“He is able to look at all aspects of the news with style and humor with an occasional good laugh in the process,â€ Klein said. â€œHe is a natural fit with Anderson Cooper, Eliot Spitzer and Kathleen Parker in our prime time line-up, and the ideal choice to update the storied tradition of newsmaker talk on CNN.”
