It’s possible that Larry King will delay his departure from CNN until the end of the year, instead of leaving in the fall, as his widely thought replacement, Piers Morgan, is reportedly having trouble getting a work visa, reports the New York Post.
CNN remains set on replacing King with Morgan, the story says. But because Morgan is a citizen of the U.K., he needs a special visa that will give him permission to work full-time in the U.S., and which are increasingly becoming difficult to obtain, the article says.
His current visa, which allows him to work on "America’s Got Talent" in the summer, permits him to work for a limited number of days in the country. But with the job on CNN, he needs to switch visas to allow him to work year-round.
