CNN’s Larry King Signing Off

“It’s time to hang up my nightly suspenders,” cable talk-show fixture Larry King announced on his show last night.

After 25 years of hosting “Larry King Live” on CNN, the cable news pioneer will end his record run this fall. CNN President Jonathan Klein told the Los Angeles Times:

“This isn’t just a big moment for CNN. It’s a big moment for cable television. He created the habit of tuning into cable at night. He made it OK to watch cable. It is a big historic inflection point.”
