After 25 years on CNN, Larry King is quietly signing off this week.
King, 77, will turn in his microphone (but he’s keeping the suspenders, despite what you may have read) Thursday, Dec. 16, when the final episode of his talk show “Larry King Live” airs.
The guests for his last week include chats with Wynonna and Naomi Judd on Tuesday night; a visit with Barbra Streisand at her Malibu home on Wednesday; and “a bunch of surprises” for Thursday’s final episode.
The top rumor centers around speculation that King’s last hurrah will include a salute from fellow newsies Diane Sawyer, Katie Couric, Brian Williams and Barbara Walters.
King’s successor is British TV personality Piers Morgan, who will launch his own show, “Piers Morgan Tonight,” on CNN in January.
