Larry King has left the CNN building

The World

For fifteen years CNN’s Larry King Live was a staple of nighttime cable television. It was the most watched program on the network and its host held court to musicians, movie starts, heads of state and newsmakers of the day. Maybe that’s what prompted Lady Gaga to ask him whether or not his name was really “King Larry?” But last night, Larry King wrapped his final episode in an interview with a star-studded show where even current and former presidents found time to make an appearance. Will he be missed, and can he be replaced?

To discuss the talk show landscape King Larry helped shape, and how it may differ from the one he is leaving behind, we speak with Michael Harrison, Publisher of Talkers Magazine, a leading trade publication for talk radio and television.
