Skip to comments.After CNN Cancels Morgan, Larry King Says: I Could Come Back
Posted on 02/24/2014 12:08:10 PM PST by Responsibility2nd
King, 81, who hosts Larry King Now, a daily half-hour Web program for Ora TVin which he has an equity stakeindicated hed be willing to return to his previous perch at CNN, Jay Leno-like, if Zucker was interested. If he talked to the people at Ora TV and they could work it out, I would do it, he said. (The Suspendered One's program is also carried on Hulu and the Putin government-backed Russia Today television network.)
For Zucker, Morgans departure represents both an opportunity and a failure, and perhaps a huge relief after years of anemic ratings. For Klein, now an independent producer, its a not entirely unexpected disappointment. I think he felt like he made a mistake, Larry King recalled.
Klein, who was fired from CNN in the fall of 2010, shortly after announcing that Morgan would take over the all-important 9 p.m. slot, dismissed Kings stab at mind-reading. Instead, he argued in an interview that hiring Morgana former Fleet Street editor whod become a fixture on British television and gained notoriety among U.S. viewers as a contestant on NBCs The Apprentice and a judge on that same networks Americas Got Talentmade eminent good sense to people in CNNs executive suite.

Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin?
I was wondering what more could CNN do to drag down its ratings... this just might do it.
Kathy Griffin is vile beyond description.
Zucker is a big Katie Couric patron.
Larry King and Dan Rather.....
Now that’s the ticket
I just realized that you meant Cooper-Griffin would be worse than Larry King - and I 100% agree with that.
I agree with King’s first idea, just run Square Bob Sponge Pants in that timeslot.
Don’t really care. I never watch CNN. If the Republicans were kicking butt in an election, for enjoyment I would watch MSNBC.
No Larry. Hell no. F’n NO.
Your time is UP.
Are Larry’s suspenders now an integral part of his skeletal structure?
In the last few photos I’ve seen of him, he looks as if he might fly apart or otherwise disassemble if they were loosened or, God forbid, removed.
Only if Putin says it's okay, comrade.....................
Oh puhleeze. Larry King is the worst interviewer in history.
They will probably be donated to the Smithsonian........................
Lady and the tramp hour. Griffin is no lady....
That is, I agree that he is the worst interviewer in history.
If being forced to watch one or the other, though, I’d still rather be subjected to his bad interviews than have to listen to Griffin & Cooper.
Larry is aging fast. I don’t think he can make it for the full owah.
Click the keyword larryking.
I believe the man is senile. See the recent threads where he claimed the media is not biased and another one where he says he’s never heard of Juanita Broaddrick and didn’t know that Bill Clinton was accused of rape.
One of his many MANY ex-wives must have given him syphilis. Because his brain shows all the symptons of advanced and untreated syphilis.
