Piers Morgan To Replace Larry King

After a month of rumors, CNN confirmed today that America's Got Talent judge Piers Morgan will be taking over for Larry King in January.
Mr. Morgan, the British-born journalist and talent show judge, will host an interview show weekdays at 9 p.m., the network said. A name for the show was not announced. It is an extraordinary coup for Mr. Morgan, who most American viewers know only as a judge on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.” A deal between the parent companies of NBC and CNN cleared the way for Mr. Morgan to take both jobs. He is also expected to retain a role on ITV, the British network, where he hosts an interview series called “Life Stories.”
King's last regular broadcast is expected to be in November, but CNN says he will continue to make specials for the network.
