Sorry to see you go Larry, but I know you won't be gone for long.....
TO: Bill Maher and Larry, what do you think of the government building bunkers for themselves and the elite for the 2012 solar storms that will knock out the power grids?
A GRAMMA FROM CANADA WILL MISS YOU . WHAT WILL I DO AT 6PM EVERY EVENING ? GOOD LUCK AND LOADS OF HAPPINESS WITH YOUR WIFE AND BOYS , XXXANDOOO
Why doesn't anyone talks about illuminati, and superstars that make blood sacrifices to become part of the elite, such as stars like: Prince, Jennifer Hudson, Sean Diddy Combs, Suge Knight, Jay-Z and so on?
P.S...even though this is a good question, i know it won't make it on air because the media is ran by illuminati as well.
Larry, I think you are a King. What does a King do? He rules. You "rule" amazingly in your shows. What does not a King do? A King does not retire. Please keep being active and you will for sure be missed. Peter Li from NYC
Why doesn't anyway talks about how diseases are manmade, such as aids and cancer, and why people shouldnt take flu shots due to these vaccines containing mercury and cancer cells, and how illuminati is damaging the food supply, and their plan for depopulating the world planning for their new world order in 2012.
P.S. for people who are reading my blog, please be aware of ALL vaccines, please do not take vaccines, and be aware of many donation foundations such as the red cross, they are all ran by illuminati...think about it this...the red cross has received millions of dollars and people are still living in tents, and are still looking for food everyday...read the bible...America is the modern day Babylon
the oil rig was blown up on purpose...this all part of the new world order.......BEWARE..SOMETHING WILL...I SAY AGAIN..WILL HAPPEN IN THE YEAR 2012...PLEASE REPENT AND BECOME CLOSER TO GOD
I will miss Larry, but I think its wonderful he is putting his wife and children at the top of his list, and proudly announcing that to everyone. They truely have a Great Husband and Father. As we have been blessed to have enjoyed a Great Talk Show Host. This is not meant to be a humorous suggestion, but I would like to suggest Whoopi Goldberg as a replacement for Larry. She is politically informed, deals very down to earth like with people, and speaks the mind of average people, yet can stand tall with any countries political dignitaries as well as any Royalties. The Woman has Class and The Sense of Humor to Continue to keep CNN's time slot well viewed.
LARRY I FEEL AS IF I KNOW YOU I'M SO SAD NO MATTER WHERE IM AT OR WHAT I,M WATCHING FOR YEARS AND YEARS , AT 9;00PM I TURN ON LARRY KING LIVE. SO SAD BUT YOU HAVE TO DO WHATS BEST FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY GOD BLESS YOU LARRY KING
Larry, I am so sad that you are leaving. Your show has always put me in the mood for a hot cup of tea or coffee and snuggle in with the freezing cold nights to just relax and hear from you and your guests.
I not only watched you winter,but all of the seasons and I regret your announcement that the show will be ending.
You always provided wonderful guests who kept us informed on so many issues.
It is very sad to hear this news., but I guess I understand your reasons
of spending time with your loved ones.
Please do not go too soon. You will be missed.
Oh, Larry, I also would like to tell you congratulations also on your longest running show. Our nights will not be the same.GOOD LUCK TO YOU LARRY KING, AND MY LAST COMMENT WILL BE THIS TO YOU..................PLEASE CHANGE YOUR MIND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you for keeping such a fabulously straight face tongue-in-cheek interview with Dave Dave. Very memorable :D
Best wishes to you and your family. Blessings always.
Larry once said to guest Sarah Silverman that she would make a good replacement because she was Jewish. I hope that someone intelligent, an expert interviewer is chosen–but someone of ANY race or religion or cultural background.
I hope that the trend is somewhat away of interviewing guests to promote their books.
I'd like to see more guests who are powerful and less celebrity, but then I enjoy celebrity too like Tim Robbins and Diddy and others. I'd love to be the program director and find interesting guests to come on.
But I want to thank you Larry because I think I've been tuning in for most of your 25 years you've been on the station, and certainly of late–you're my nightly habit. I wish you all the happiness you've given to us. Thank you for living and working with excellence.
Larry, you are a true icon who will be greatly missed.
I have watched your show for many years and have
enjoyed every guest and every topic.
I personally think you are doing the right thing, because
everybody deserves time and freedom. Time with friends
and family is something you can never get back. So even
though CNN will not be quite the same with out you, I wish
you a very happy future, and thanks for such great entertainment!
Larry, we understand.....We'll miss you, but we do understand......Every night we watch, Jane Valez Mitchell, then Nancy Grace, then YOU, so we can get the truth.....Family and health has to always come first and foremost......Take care of yourself, and your family.......Always know how much your viewers have trusted you, and loved you.....and we will certainly miss you......I'll try to find something else to do, other than wonder what Larry will be wearing tonight....We really do appreciate you, for who you are, what you are, and the way you are......I don't care what anybody says, YOU CAN" BE REPLACED....Enjoy your family and take some time for yourself......Love you always........ The Whigam's
will miss wathing you every night. ur a legend . would love to have your autograph sir.
Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! You are the only show that I religiously watch on television. I wish you the best...love to you and your family. BUTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT I AM GOING TO MISS YOU LARRY!
Mr. King, you are good company! Thanks for your whole career thus far and happy wishes for your "retirement".
I just started getting into your show and just bookmarked your Twitter. It saddens me to see you leaving so soon. I shall miss your glasses and suspenders. You make me laugh; especially when you interview Kathy Griffin (who would be a grrrr-eat replacement).
I wish I could be at your farewell party.
Best of luck,
I am sorry that you will be going off the air on your nightly show. You've always been very fair with everyone you've had on your show and always have had a wide area of interest which shows your open and curious mind at it's very best. You will be missed.
If I were to think who would be the best replacement for you it would have to be non other that the great PHIL DONAHUE!
I love Bill Mahar, I am an conservative Democrat. wOw OXYMORON IN TERMS.
Truth be told: I blame the environmentalists for making BP and other oil companies bury the well 5000 dt down. Honestly! If the well was servicable from 100 ft up would not man be able to service this well without robotics?
Shame on environmentalists for burying oil wells .As a result, the plumes are flowing down a loop current around Fla Keys to NC and into the Atlantic.
Bill Mahar speak to the environmentalists faux paux for creating policy! But no one talks about that??
You my friend are a Legend! I would go to sleep with your radio shows in the 70's .Between you and Tom Snyder. You are the Pillar of Broadcasting!
No one will ever duplicate thr KING!
Good for you on announcing your retirement from Larry King Live. Sad for the viewers. You are the reason I have a TV. And you are the only reason I have CNN............ I love watching you and I am a devoted fan. Agreeing with Regis tonight, you are an original, one of a kind man, broadcaster, interviewer.............. You are amazing! I love to watch you laugh and watching you tonight crack up with Bill Mauer was priceless............... I LOVED you with Lady Gaga .. you are brilliant, polite, tactful and funny ............... You must love women,; you've been married so many times..........
I loved reading that story that you took your wife to Tiffany's and told her to pick out anything she wanted – wow!!
I wish you health and happiness in your life and wonderful times with your family...........
I will treasure every night left of you on CNN.
Thanks for a superior job and letting us know you a little bit,
Larry we will miss you. I enjoyed the announcement show. However, your big name ticket w/ Bill Mayer was so bad. Keep it at family and show clips, bring on the big ones for a big real sincere goodbye. Bill Mayer and you probably have a long friend/working history, that is very respecatble but why didnt the directors keep it at that & fun! . It went "bad "and a "lull" in converstion on the show when Bill Mayer who is "not" an expert in oil or politics, went on about the oil spill and politics with floundering his left political beliefs and flailing! He is an entertainer, when he said you can" up your a__" that is a good example of someone we shouldnt follow, left or right, and I felt he is in a dilema himself! Of course he wont make a stand for his far left, that would be too embarrasing, so now he is finding difficulty in even discussing it on TV., and he might miss an invite somewhere with the left./right. Keep the good entertainment, including Bill, but leave the polictics out and go out respectfully!
I'm sorry to hear we'll no longer be able to watch your nightly show. It has been one of the few dependably great programs on television. You are a master interviewer – you make it look effortless. It's been a privilege to watch someone with such intelligence, curiosity about life and people, and a great sense of humor doing his work. I look forward to watching your specials on CNN. Best wishes.
Larry, I don't know how I am going to get along without you and your interesting guests every night at 9 p.m. Have enjoyed the show for many years and especially enjoyed you. Best wishes. You will be missed, but I will look forward to your specials. Thanks for all these years!
Please reconsider and DON'T GO.
Thanks for the all the fun Larry! your interviews have been a hoot and very insightful at the same time.
There really is only one person I can think of that is even remotely qualified to take the reigns, and that is Ben Stein.
He's educated, politically aware and funny.
I ABSOLUTELY ADORE Larry King. He is a very good journalist, reasonable, down to earth, real and likeable. I am sorry to see his show end as it is one of my favorite. I look forward to his specials. I do have one beef. I am watching him now at almost 4 am in the morning with his guest Bill Maher. Who I also like. When Bill asked who Larry would like to take his place, King said Ryan Seacrest. I am EXTREMELY disappointed in that. For one thing, Seacrest gets a lot more than he deserves. Yes he works very hard and is likeable to a lot of people. However, we are WAAY TOO CELEBRITY DRIVEN in this society. And too easy to get suckered up in todays over the top hype that makes huge celebrities out of people who really don't have a lot of substance. If we look beyond the fact that luck played a lot in their success. Sure Seacrest works hardand has a chance to be a good business person mainly due to being at the right place at the right time. But he is NOT at all the right person for this job. His jabs with a much more astute Simon Cowell shows how limited Seacrest actually is intellectually. The sad thing is that too much of America misses that fact while being swallowed up in the largeness of Idol. With all of the fine, hard working journalists out there who have great personalities, it is a shame that people won't give them a chance. GIVE SOMEBODY ELSE A CHANCE FOR GOD'S SAKE. But Larry I still adore you. Robert.
I've listened to you on the radio and/or watched you on CNN since I was 10 years old. I and my family have made you a part of our regular routine for most of my life. I will really miss not seeing you every week night and we'll all be looking foreword to seeing you in your future projects! Best of luck to you and your family, Larry. You're the best!
LKL – I have enjoyed your shows – they have been amazing and I will truly miss them. This segment will not be the same without you. But I wish you well.
You have been like the light in the dark, many of us knew what to expect from you and you did a fantastic job.....
I would like to suggest.....for your last interview.....go outside and pick a person off the street (or anywhere) and interiew them.....some of the most interesting people out there are amongst us....
I think that could start a new trend for the future....
Good Luck to you Larry. Been an amazing ride. Would love to see Pat Sajak take over. Best of luck to you!
Family does come first, and thank you for sharing that.
As a long time viewer, I have watched you on CNN.com - and 99% of the time you asked the right questions, and with that, you get the right answers, and thus, it made your show very entertaining as well as insightful. You are a great TV interviewer.
I look forward to seeing those specials.
My prayers and best wishes to you and yours.
Go well Larry!
Thank you for your dedication and for the memories.
Try and put your feet up and relax and smell the roses.
Larry is a habit which I cant kick.
How do i get my daily fix after this?
Thanks for a great show that tells us the truth about our world and those who govern it.
I will deeply miss your show and your unique laughter.
Dear Larry, you will be greatly missed. I feel the candidates i would like to see replace you are: bill maher, rachel maddow, anderson cooper, diane sawyer and if she was younger barbara walters.
i feel that you need a journalist as well as someone who is up to date on politics can you imagine that guy from idol speaking directly to the leader of Iran. no way.
i think you should ask the public for suggestions and then decided between what cnn wants and what you would like to you.
thanks again for such informative programs.
I love your show. I used to watch it since I was in Africa. I will miss it. Good luck
oh God please not Ryan Seacreast. We don't need nightly interviews of past American Idols, the Kardashians, Paris Hilton, Nicole Ritchie etc. Once you get past the National Inquiry kind of stuff Ryan Seacreast...give me a break!
Give Ryan Seacrest the job & you might as well change the name of CNN to TMZ or E!
Bill Maher WOULD BE GREAT!!! He is so smart & was so funny last nite.
By the way Larry when Nancy Reagan phoned in it was painful to listen to. Could thing you spoke to fill in her silence. Beloved Nancy really? I don't think so.
Your talent is in knowing which questions to ask and being a gentleman in how you asked. Your ability to direct your staff so they scheduled the people of the moment surpassed anyone else.
Best wishes in retirement. You have earned the right to hang up your suspenders and devote the rest of your life to your family. Even though we will miss you, let this be a part of your past.
Bill Rancic would be a good replacement. He is well spoken and seems to be a postive guy.
i was introduced to the late nite larry king radio program by my mother. i chided her for "going to bed" with Larry King every night. i began to listen and enjoyed the radio program very much.
I think Don Lemom should take Larry's spot. I think he would do an excellent job.
Dear Larry- ( I wish I had called you Dad or something like that; I fancy doing that to people who I adore). I think your decision to stop the regular shows and turn to special shows is a fantastic decision. The world might turn upto the much awaited big bang bash in some parts of the world in 2012 or a little later if people like you do not form a club and watch it right. Thinkers and analysts like you must stay focused and work on those issues single mindedly rather than talking to the never-ending celebrities who can be interviewed by bright interviewers. You took the decision to opt out from the show a couple of days after when I thought you must take weekly special shows that should be very geared towards protecting USA and people you love for 2012, rather just continue to be generic in taking interviews of all interesting people. Please start a weekly two hours show. A very good luck and a great time ahead. I have a feeling your contribution after the daily job will be classical and you will finally be remembered in the post 2012 golden era of human kind for the show you made after you stopped the daily generics. A whole lot of love and regards, Manideepa Patnaik, Bhubaneswar, India
I'm am so sorry you're going but can understand why.
I've been watching you for the entire 25 years on CNN and have to say no one can replace you, a true professional when it comes to interviewing a guest no matter who the guest. Whenever something is happening in the world you're right on it & people trust you to give you the interview.
Thank You for all the good work you've done with charity, the laughs, the interesting hours of entertainment and insight.
Enjoy, you earned it ...I'll be looking forward to those specials you're going to do!
I love your show and will miss it. Best of luck
Larry,I would just like to tell you that I have thoroughly enjoyed you for the last 25 years.I will never forget you and am so glad that you are still going to be a part of the CNN team.You are deeply cared for and loved by your fans.You have been an inspiration to me and to thousands of others in this world.There have been many nights I have not been able to sleep and got up to watch you.If it was too late to actually watch you,I made sure your show was recorded.Larry,I love you and adore you.God Bless you and can't wait to see thespecials you are going to do
It's about time you took a BREAK!
Don't hang up those Suspenders for long...or we will all come looking for you!
Enjoy some free time. Kick off those shoes and relax.
Go drink some Lemonade under a big Oak Tree with your kids.
Enjoy the simple things in Life – You deserve it.
ps. When are you and Bill going to see that amazing Ventriloquist?
I want to go too!
Please, do not replace Larry King with Ryan Seacrest, or Joy Behar. We need someone who will be hard hitting journalist and do well conducted interviews. We don't need another tabloid type, entertainment, wishy washy interview show.
Larry Rocks, choose wisely.
Please consider Howard Stern for the job to replace Larry King. He is a great interviewed and has mellowed with age. His contract with Sirius/XM satellite is up soon. Howard would be a great addition to CNN.
"Am I beginning to get repetitious?" (a repost)
You've been an inspiration to me and to millions for so many years. I don't know how I'm going to fill in that little part of my life without your show. You've done so many wonderful interviews over the years, I'm amazed how you could continue to host your show for so long - your record speaks for itself.
In your field you've set the bar very high; in my opinion, no one can fill your shoes. You are an American icon, one of a kind, and simply irreplaceable. The world is a better place because of your influence; you have a rare gift, as an interviewer you have a remarkeable ability beyond just asking questions, you've managed to present and even shape world events, while managing to always keep your positive attitude towards life. I know I'm not alone when I say, "The King Wearing Suspenders" will be sorely missed.
I wish you all the best in your future with family and friends.
I think that Matt Laurer would be a fantastic replacement. He is the best interviewer on TV. The total package.
Here is a copy of the email I sent CNN this morning regarding Larry King's departure. I thought you might be interested. Let me know if you want the URL for the missive department at the network and I will send it over.
I was deeply saddened to learn of the sudden retirement of Larry King and the resulting loss that will be suffered not only by his loyal audience but by journalism as a whole. In the wake of his impending absence I would urge you to replace him with a host that preserves and most closely models the program which we have tuned into for over two and half decades. Larry's preferable choice of Ryan Seacrest is a logical one to replicate his manner and technique. However to perfectly preserve the unique and valuable program he has created I believe the network should replace Larry with an open mic. It would be most in keeping with the interviewing style he has cultivated for the past twenty five years, it is how he has been able to maintain the amazing array of guests that he has, and it is what has made him a living legend. In lieu of this suggestion, yes, Ryan Seacrest, perfect.
Thank you in advance.
Don´t go, larry, please...I´m missing you already...
kisses from brazil
You're loved in Canada too. It's hard for me to accept that you will be leaving. You're a special talent that can not be replaced or duplicated. I look forward to seeing you again–hopefully soon. You deserve a break. I wish you all the best, for many years to come...old friend.
Larry King..Mr. King,
Oh how I hate to see you go..have enjoyed your show for so many years and just can't imagine you not being there.
I don't think anyone can fill your shoes..ah, that would be your seat! You will be a hard act to follow. Have always loved your layed back style, fairness & integrity.
But, if you must go (you could still change your mind), I second your vote for Ryan Seacreast. He is the perfect choice, has a wonderful demeanor and a layed back style as well. Perfect choice for the show..but there will never be a replacement for you. There will just be a new host.
Best wishes to you and your family! You all deserve it. Thanks for all the years! Come back often. And I want those last pair of suspenders!
Dearest Larry, All of my life, I have been watching your show & YOU! You have always continued to "Bring us all the TRUTH", "The Real & The TRUE Stories, each day!" Your show & YOU are truly the "ONLY" show that seems to care about the people & us! YOU always have asked the questions that WE wanted to ask your guest! You have touched lives all over the world, we have been blessed to have cried/laughed, shared saddness/happiness, all together! YOU have gone where no-one else has been able to. I will never forget the "important days/shows" & where I was, what was going on, at the time things happened, that are now histroy! You have NOT judged others, as you had them on your show. As so many other shows do. I always knew for a fact that "NO MATTER" what news broke, I could always depend on turning "Larry King Live" on to find out the "TRUE STORY" of what had/has happened! There will NEVER be another you, I can hope that CNN will be able to find someone, who is able to do this right. I know that NO-ONE can ever fill your shoes. But, I do hope that they can find someone, who is kind of "like you'! Which is going to be very hard to do! I can only pray that YOU will come back when there is "Shocking News", "Important Stories" that "NEED" to be told & the "TRUE STORY"! We could/can always depend on YOU for the REAL STORY! May God continue to Bless and Keep YOU and your family as this new chapter opens in your life. And, "hopefully" you will return with a NEW SHOW, even if in another time slot. IF you do, "WE WILL BE THERE WITH YOU!" You have a GIFT from God that is VERY SPECIAL, & it is VERY RARE for people to have the GIFT that YOU have! I will not say which one, but I can only pray before you leave, that YOU will do your best to get to the bottom of ONE of the "crimes" that is still out there. And, that we will see JUSTICE served for this person, it would truly be a Wonderful Way, to end the show. As you have followed this person/family from the beginning, & I know this FAMILY NEEDS JUSTICE served! HIS precious Children NEEDS this also. And, I know that YOU are truly the ONLY one who could bring this story to light & make sure it was/is told right and true!
God Bless YOU, Larry King!
Sorry to see Larry go – I have enjoyed most of his interviews immensely. I hope they are able find a suitable replacement – those are going to be some tough shoes to fill!!
Congratulations Larry, on your retirement. Best of luck to you.
Please, please find a suitable replacement for Larry King. My first suggesstion would be George Stephenoplis! What a pro who always seems to be fair and balanced. I can not think of anyone who could fill Larry's shoes better than George Stephenoplis!
You have done a great job over the years Mr. King. I will surley miss watching you every night, but it come a time when you must just rest and have time for yourself. Love you
You are going to be missed in our household. There is no one to take your place. We love your show because it is down to earth not off the wall. Yet you have a wonderful sense of humor love it when you interview Bill Mahr,Sad to say but you were the only one We watched on CNN probably because there was no sensationalism which, we get tired of . So thank you for the years of straight talk plus the entertainment love to you and your family
Jan and Mel
I will miss you Larry....
Thankyou -have so enjoyed your television shows, but also the nights on radio.
I would like to see Tom Hanks as a candidate for LKL. It seems CNN has drifted far afield from its humble yet intelligent,interesting, and captivativing early years.( Like the irreplaceable days of Mr. Cronkite, equally great were Mr. Shaw and Mr. Arnett for example. Anderson Cooper and John King clearly are in this category as well.) The air waves lack journalism of integrity,that is thought provoking,informative, interesting without the tabloid sensation,unbiased and appealing to an audience who is knowledgeable.Ted Turner's opinion would be of value at this time as it will be a milestone for CNN. CNN has attempted to appeal to a different audience of late;leaving very little for those left who appreciate the quality of journalism originally offered.The closest offered would probably be the BBC. LKL will be missed for all the reasons listed above!
