CNN's Larry King Exits After 25 Years

NEW YORK -- Larry King has pulled the curtain down on his CNN talk show after 25 years.

Two presidents, four television news anchors and a 10-year-old son who looked ready to take dad's place behind the microphone have turned out to bid King farewell Thursday.

The 77-year-old King was serenaded by Tony Bennett singing "The Best is Yet to Come" via remote from Louisiana.

King had announced this summer he would leave, ushered out by a struggling network. Once the dominant voice in cable television news, King has faded in a sea of sharp talkers. British talk-show host and "America's Got Talent" judge Piers Morgan takes over the 9 p.m. Eastern time slot in January.

Except for an agreement to host four specials a year at CNN, it's not clear what his work future holds. He's talked of doing comedy, or going back to some radio work.
