Well, after several years of rumors about the supposedly impending departure of Larry King, it's finally going to happen. Larry King is leaving this fall, ending 25 years of hosting in prime time on CNN. And as someone who has followed Larry for years on the radio and TV I gotta say it is a sad day.
As for CNN, it's the end of an era. Lou Dobbs, Christiane Amanpour and now Larry King. I know Larry says he'll be back to do specials and so on, but still -- this is yet another departure of a CNN veteran. The only one still in the building seems to be Wolf Blitzer.
