CNN interviewer Larry King quits

Veteran CNN broadcaster Larry King announced his decision to step down from his long-running show Tuesday, ending a record-breaking career that saw him conduct more than 40,000 interviews.

Larry King quits Larry King LiveKing, 76, said in a statement his signature show “Larry King Live” would go off the air in the autumn after 25 years, allowing him to find “more time for my wife and I to get to the kids little league games.”

King’s marriage to seventh wife Shawn Southwick recently appeared to be on the rocks, with the wiry anchorman filing for divorce in April before a reconciliation between the couple, according to reports.

King, one of the most recognizable figures on US television, said he still plans to work for CNN after the end of his nightly show, which has been the subject of intense speculation for months following falling ratings.

“I’ll still be a part of the CNN family, hosting several Larry King specials on major national and international subjects,” he said.

The interviewer said he was proud of the fact that his show had recently entered the Guinness Book of World Records for having the longest running show with the same host in the same time slot.

“With this chapter closing I’m looking forward to the future and what my next chapter will bring, but for now it’s time to hang up my nightly suspenders,” he said, referring to his trademark attire.
