Piers Morgan Officially Replaces Larry King

Goodbye Larry King, hello Piers Morgan!

NBC Universal Television Entertainment chairman Jeff Gaspin, confirmed that Piers Morgan has signed on to replace Larry King as the anchor of CNN's Live.

There were rumors for months that Piers was going to replace Larry and apparently the reason the deal was stalling was because of Piers' "America's Got Talent" contract with NBC.

When asked whether the new "Talent" contract meant NBC would be sharing Morgan with CNN, Gaspin had a one word reply: "Yes," reports The Wrap.

Do you think Piers will be a good replacement for Larry? Who would you have wanted to fill the seat?
