Larry King Says He Wouldn’t Recognize Presumed Heir ‘if He Was Walking Down the Street’

Jul 16, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Larry King, who will leave CNN in the fall, tells Forbes.com that he wouldn’t recognize his presumed replacement, Piers Morgan, "if he was walking down the street." 

As earlier reported, "America’s Got Talent" judge Piers Morgan is close to signing a contract worth around $5 million to $6 million a year to replace King. But despite King’s comment and his assertion that most Americans wouldn’t know Morgan unless they watch "America’s Got Talent," King tells the publication that his replacement will be accepted quickly by American viewers.

"British talent gets pretty much accepted here," King says. "It’s the mother country. If that’s not his cup of tea, then he’s going to do more personality interviews – and I think he knows a lot about personalities." Still, King gives a plug for his preferred heir in the interview, saying Ryan Seacrest would be "immediately accepted." "The camera likes him and he’s a great generalist," King adds.
