Larry King No Longer Hosting CNN Specials


Larry King


A little bit more than a year after his primetime series ended, the former 'Larry King Live' host and the network agree to permanently cut ties.

Larry King and CNN have officially parted ways, months after his "Larry King Live" wrapped up. The network has announced that the veteran host will no longer do specials, of which he previously agreed to make four times a year for CNN.

"CNN and Larry King have mutually agreed to end the Larry King specials," said the network in a statement released on Wednesday, February 15. "We have the greatest respect for Larry and wish him the best of luck with his new endeavors."

King himself said he has "nothing but love and respect for CNN." The two-time winner of Peabody Awards added, "I'm looking forward to all the wonderful business opportunities that I will now dedicate my full time to."

Since "Larry King Live" ended in December 2010, Piers Morgan has occupied the primetime slot with "Piers Morgan Tonight". King recently hosted a special "Dinner with the Kings" for CNN, which featured the likes of Russell Brand, Seth MacFarlane, Tyra Banks, Conan O'Brien and Shaquille O'Neal as his guests.
