78-year-old Larry King spent 27 years of his illustrious broadcasting career at CNN. This week, Larry King and CNN came to a mutual decision to end that relationship.
"Larry King Live," King's signature show, ended in 2010 amid declining ratings, but King and CNN planned on having quarterly interview show specials.
"Piers Morgan Tonight," the successor show to "Larry King Live" on CNN, has garnered better ratings than its predecessor in its first year by about 55,000 viewers nightly.
King is reportedly working on an unknown venture with Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim Helu, the richest man in the world.
