After 25 years on the air, Larry King says it’s time “to hang up my nightly suspenders.”
The talk-show host, 76, said Tuesday he’ll end his run on Larry King Live in the fall but will remain with CNN for occasional specials, “giving me more time for my wife and I to get to the kids’ little league games.”
“With this chapter closing I’m looking forward to the future and what my next chapter will bring,” says King.
A replacement for King’s 9 p.m. ET slot will be made “in the weeks ahead,” according to CNN.
