Exclusive: Piers Morgan Says He’s Staying at CNN to Do “Big Name” Interviews
Showbiz 411 ^ | March 2, 2014 12:35 | Roger Freidman

CNN’s Piers Morgan, who is ending his nightly show on the network, isn’t going anywhere. He told me last night that he’s staying at the network. “I’ll make a deal to do 20 ro 25 shows a year, all interviews with big names. That’s what I wanted to do in the first place, not reports on snow storms and that kind of thing.”

Morgan said his producer, Jonathan Wald, has already made a deal to stick around. What does he think will replace his current show? “A news program of some kind,” he said. He also acknowledged that his campaign for gun control was like “beating my head against a wall.”

Morgan was one of dozens of big names who attended a swanky dinner at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills last night thrown by Harvey Weinstein to show off numbers from a possible new Broadway musical called “Finding Neverland.”

Let me guess, he has so much guaranteed money they cannot afford to dump him totally?

Yup...

CNN would do that just to tick off non-liberals.

I’d guess they figure to break his contract will cost as much or more than letting the loon stay and screw up new stuff.

Pull his green card, he’ll be going somewhere...

like who would sit in with him for an interview. Anyone stupid enough to have a one on one with him is really open for ridicule.

Perhaps this is good new (in a way). Maybe we’ll get to see how low CNN’s viewership can really go.

Like a skunk’s spray, these washouts never seem to go away. They hang around doing whatever vain, pointless diddling they can, until one day you see an obit and say “Wow! I didn’t know he was still alive.”

He is doing the (Oscar) Red Carpet interviews right now. Kind of bizarre choice, given his extreme unlike-ability.

Interview “Big names” as in other whiny, obama butt kissing liberals.

Why did his show get canceled if he is such a big name?

I think he's got the Geico Gecko lined up for next week.

He is a joke. No one wanted to watch his European socialist bull crap before and they won't watch it in the future either.

He will be history as soon as they can figure out how to get him paid off and be rid of him.
