Larry King Finishes Strong
He’s been on the air for 25 years, and last night (December 16) Larry King signed off from his CNN show “Larry King Live” for the last time.
The 77-year-old entertainment icon will pass the baton to Piers Morgan, and he had a hard time coming up with something to say as his last show drew to a close.
“It’s not very often in my life that I’ve been without words. I never thought it would last this long or come to this.”
All in all King has done almost 50,000 interviews in his broadcasting career, speaking with the top names in entertainment, politics, and religion.
And in his usual simply-worded style, Larry ended things out with, “Instead of goodbye, how about ‘so long?’”
