Charlie Rose wannabe Larry King has announced that cable TV’s most irrelevant talk show is going off the air after 25 years. King will remain with CNN and appear on “occasional specials”. Us Magazine reports:
After 25 years, his program Larry King Live will wrap up sometime this fall, the 76-year-old confirmed in a statement Tuesday. Citing a desire to spend more time with his family, King said “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.”
The article doesn’t go on to say that Larry King will spend his time writing his memoirs, discussing how the new musical act Color Me Badd has a bright future, and coming to life every night when the museum closes.
Note: Your discerning eye may have noticed that the banner pic is not Larry King but Playboy Playmate Jessica Burciaga. Why no picture of Larry King? I really hope you just didn’t say that out loud.
