Piers Morgan says he’s getting closer to taking over Larry King’s time slot on CNN, reports the Los Angeles Times’ ShowTracker blog.
From the red carpet at Sunday’s Emmy awards ceremony, Morgan told the newspaper, "We’re near the end of negotiations and we’re getting to what I hope will be a very happy resolution." He added that being on CNN is like working for one of the "great holy grails of television."
Morgan also said that he won’t try to copy King’s style. "They’re the biggest suspenders to fill imaginable. So I won’t even try. I’ll just be myself and no suspenders."
