Piers Morgan Taking Over For Larry King: Good Choice?

Piers Morgan, probably best known in the U.S. as a judge on “America’s Got Talent,” will replace Larry King on CNN’s prime-time lineup in January, the network announced on Wednesday.

Morgan, 45, a veteran journalist who hosts “Piers Morgan’s Life Stories” in the United Kingdom, will reportedly do a similar show for CNN.  His new show for CNN (show name not yet known) will air live on CNN-US at 9 p.m. ET and will air worldwide on CNN-International in more than 200 countries, the network said. Morgan will be based in New York, but also will work from Los Angeles and London, according to CNN.

“Piers has made his name posing tough questions to public figures, holding them accountable for their words and deeds,” said CNN-US President Jon Klein. “He is able to look at all aspects of the news with style and humor with an occasional good laugh in the process.”

Morgan was rumored to be King’s replacement for the past few months, but nothing had been confirmed. King announced over the summer that he was stepping aside from CNN’s “Larry King Live,” a show he began hosting in 1985, according to CNN.

“I have watched ‘Larry King Live’ for much of the last 25 years, and dreamed of one day filling the legendary suspenders of the man I consider to be the greatest TV interviewer of them all,” Morgan told CNN.

Morgan, 45, began his journalism career as a newspaper reporter in the United Kingdom for The Wimbledon News. In 1994, when he was 28, Morgan became the youngest editor ever at Rupert Murdoch’s News of the World. He moved to the Daily Mirror as editor-in-chief in 1995, a post he held for nine years, according to CNN.  He has also written monthly columns, including one for GQ magazine.

Recently Morgan has become a television personality, hosting interview programs on the BBC and ITV. Simon Cowell hired Morgan as on a judge on the top-rated “Britain’s Got Talent.”  And of course, now judges on “America’s Got Talent,” as mentioned above. Morgan also appeared on Donald Trump’s “The Celebrity Apprentice” and won the reality show, which was for charity.

Do you think Piers Morgan is a good choice to replace Larry King? Will you watch? Is there someone else you would have preferred as the new host? Share your comments below.

      The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

    16. I have learned result-oriented items via your site. 1 other thing I want to say is newer laptop operating systems are inclined to allow far a lot more memory to get used, but they likewise demand more storage merely to operate.

      This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

I have a blog centered on the same information you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my readers would enjoy your work. If you’re even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e-mail.

      i have three lemons and a blender, water, sugar, etc. . . i have everyhting but a recipe. but i only have three lemons. i also heard im supposed to leave the peels on when i bledn. is this true. THX!.

    41. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

    42. Very interesting information!Perfect just what I was searching for!
