Goodbye Larry King
In a New York Times story, he expressed no regrets about leaving his how which will be taken over by Piers Morgan, but noted the current state of the industry and his 9 PM ET competitors.
“If you look at media now,” he said in a telephone interview, “all the hosts of these other shows are interviewing themselves. The guests are a prop for the hosts on these cable networks. The guest to me was always paramount.”
And the one thing I liked that some of the 50,000 people that he's interviewed on the show included trans people and transpersons of color.
Larry, you are a class act. We Americans and others who crave intelligent discourse on TV are definitely going to miss you.
