CNN names Piers Morgan as Larry King’s replacement

NEW YORK — CNN says Piers Morgan of “America’s Got Talent” will replace Larry King on the network’s prime-time lineup in January.

Morgan, a veteran journalist who hosts a popular interview program in Britain, will do a similar show for CNN. His selection as King’s replacement had been widely expected for the past few months.

CNN President Jon Klein says Morgan is “able to look at all aspects of the news with style and humor with an occasional good laugh in the process.”

The struggling news network will debut another prime-time show with former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer and columnist Kathleen Parker in October.
