I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed watching you Larry over the years. You are without a doubt, the best interviewer in the world. Your style, grace and honesty ar second to none. People from all walks of life, entertainment, sports, politics, and general have entrusted you with their personal lives and opened up with an ease that only you have laid upon them.
I hope you continue to be well, and involve yourself in projects that you want to do. After all, television without you totally would leave a tremendous void in my life.
Bless you and your familoy always and best of everything always.
From a tremendous fan, mark P. ginsburg
I love you Larry!
dint miss a show for the past 10 yrs
best of luck
Larry – You're the best!!! I miss you already! Hopefully, we will be seeing you from time to time and I will look forward to that! Best of everything to you...
Hi Larry!! Just want to say You are the best!! Thank You,for always being honest &just YOU! I wish you & your family the best! Larry,relax & enjoy! Looking foward to the specials..thanks,MR.KING...
I am so sorry that Larry King will be leaving. I think he should always host the show. He made it what it is and we can depend on seeing it at the usual times. He has built an audience, is an excellent interviewer and is
still as sharp as ever. Why change what's going well? I will miss his personality and his level headed way of dealing with whatever happens.
I can't even begin to describe how much I will miss Larry King!
I have watched him faithfully over the years and enjoyed every single
show. He is the best, in my opinion. I look forward to seeing his
specials on CNN next year.
I've watched your program since the late '80s when I was in middle school.
For me, the most unforgettable moment was the McGreevey kiss. Not even your friend Jerry Springer could have his show match that.
I'm in my early '30s now, and I have no problem saying that I've been a fan of your program and how I'll miss you very much.
You're a legend. You've been a giant in this business. There will never ever been another talk show host like you.
Congratulations on your accomplishments throughout these 25 years. You have certainly interviewed some interesting people. I learned something new each time I watched your program.
I also wanted to thank you for this place, this blog you provided with all the articles after the tragic passing of Michael Jackson. Hearing your voice announce his death, in shock and totally devastated, I came to this place. The blog got a bit crazy but I cannot thank you enough for this refuge where I found a few who have since become sweet friends of mine.
In the interviews you have done with members of Michael's family, you have shown the upmost respect. You were there for them....and all of us. Thank you, thank you.
I wish you all the best and admire you for wanting to spend more time with your family. When it's all been said and done, that's what really matters.
You cared, you got some results.You cared enough, you got incredible results.
Relax and Rewind
Larry ..................You have no idea just HOW MUCH I WILL MISS
I have watched your show since you first went on the air!!!!!!
I kid my friends that I just got another email from Larr
My biggest surprise has been the fact that you had Wendy
behind you!! I gave you credit for it all!!! I am only happy for
Your two boys, that they will have their Dad around so much
Luv ya Larry I will miss you so much
I only hope you see this. I would be remiss if I didn't thank you for all the nights I've spent with you for 35 years. My favorite guest? Bill Maher, of course! You were always the best of hosts. Always gracious and fair.,and a comfortable man to spend some nights with. Enjoy your well deserved retirement with family & friends.
OMG Larry, I will be lost without you! You have brought me sooo much to look forward to nightly, and I feel like you're family. Thank you so very much for all the fun, entertaining, and educational shows you have done. Thanks for the memories and enjoy yourself!
Best wishes Larry. Kudos to both Larry and CNN for understanding that some of us have a longer attention span than 140 characters and enjoy the opportunity to spend a whole hour learning about an interesting person.
You and your show have been part of my evening for so many years (decades ) now. I'm going to really and truly miss YOU. 9 p.m. will never be the same. Thank you for all of those great evenings, for the wonderful banter with all your great guests, and for just being you. There really is only one King, and that's you. Best wishes to you and your family and best wishes for a great life outside of Larry King Live. Keep on being yourself. I'll really miss you. Katrina in Lexington, Kentucky
Larry, You are the best! We will miss your terrific interviews everynight!!Thanks for all the wonderful TV!!! No one can replace you.
If you were going to appear as a talk show guest, whose show would you like to be on?
Thanks for all the great memories Larry, now take time to enjoy your family and friends, and best of luck with everything you do. You've given us lots of smiles and tears you're a legend!
Best of Luck! You have always managed to give me a new perspective on people, current events, and topics of the day. I can not thank you enough! Best wishes!
Thank you and best wishes as you start this new 25 year gig. May it be as rewarding and emotionally fulfilling as the past 25.
PS....please make Pierce sign a contract that he will have Bill Mahr on once in a while.

Can't imagine that not being a Larry King Live program! I've always enjoyed watching your shows and the many different guests. You were never afraid to ask the "tough" questions. There will be nobody to replace you! You will be greatly missed!
We will miss you Larry, No one interviews like you do! You always brought us the top stories and most influential guests! I hope you enjoy the new show half as much as we always enjoyed yours!! God Bless!! Cathy in South GA
It's almost like Larry is dieing and hes at his own wake so long Larry go jump in that R.V. and have fun .
I am a great fan of yours although 25 years ago when you started the show I was only 5 years old. Like you sometimes say to others, I am saying to you tonight that YOU ARE ONE OF MY FAVORITE PEOPLE and I will miss you greatly.
Love you always,
I first heard of Larry King when my father had an interview on Larry's radio
show. My father, Alvin M. Eicoff was a pioneer of advertising and spoke of his view of Larry King. Dad was so impressed with Mr. King that he thought Larry would be great on television. I have enjoyed Mr. Kings
show and I will miss his interaction with his questions of many important guests.
Jeffrey A. Eicoff

Larry, if you marketed "Larry King Live" suspenders, you could sell them for charity...I know I woud buy them...cuz your the greatest!!!
Hi Larry, I'm 16 and grew up watching "Larry King Live" and I just wanted to let you know that we are all truly going to miss you. Thanks for all you've done.
There will be a huge void in my life, every night @ 9:00 p.m. You were the best!
Thank you for your endless visits to my living room & bedroom for years. You have been a wonderful guest & it has been a real pleasure to have you over with your own guests. Thank you for introducing Bill Maher & Anderson Cooper. Because of you, I'm hooked to them. THANK YOU! Can't wait to see what you have in store in the future. Love You!!!!
Thank you for raising our intellect one interview at a time.
As I watch this last show I cannot stop SMILING because of all of the good memories! You are a wonderful man, I hope your next projects are very enjoyable.
Larry your are simply the best. I enjoyed your interaction with Jack Hanna and his animals.
God Speed to the best anchor ever. As a viewer, ill miss you so much. Don't be away too long.

From a humble immigrant from Nigeria, you have shown the world outside the United States what the value of free speech means! You have inspired a generation of young nigerians about the true meaning of self expression! We will miss you terribly!

Enjoy your retirement
All the best to you and yours...

I have watched you for many years, your kindness and skill has always been exemplary! You will definitely be missed by our family. I cannot imagine anyone could fill your shoes. We will miss you...
Really enjoyed Larry King over the past years.
I tuned in tonight to see the final show, and after 15 minutes had to change channel –
This guy that is on, Bill Mars is trying to be funny – and he is taking away from a good show. He is not funny & he's annoying.
Good luck Larry –
I am changing the channel because of the Mars guy.
May your future life be as elastic as your suspenders
My family will miss u Larry
I first saw Larry on Miami TV in 1975 after 11 at night hosting a stupid show called "Racing for Riches," or something like that, where the contestant guessed which horse was going to win a race that was replayed form that days races at Hialeah. Really dumb, but we watched it every night, just for the laughs. LArry looked really uncomfortable on camera.
But my law school roommate told me he was listening to the radio and Larry also hosted a local interview program that was really good. He was especially good at addressing legal issues. I started listening, and kept listening–he did GREAT interviews (I'm thinking of a guy named Murray Stans??)
No surprise that he has done so well. But if anybody has any kinescopes of "Racing for Riches"-they're worth a look– Hysterical.
You are the most talented and skilled interviewer in the world, no doubt about it. No one will ever be able to replace you.God Bless you and your time with your well-deserving family!
Mr. King, it is a pleasure to see someone interview another person as professionally as you have done over the years. You have managed to let each person reveal themselves, without judgement on your part. Your talent, and your genuine friendly personality will be missed each evening. Thank you for adding to our knowledge of all the interesting people there are in this world.
Way before CNN, before USA Today, Professor King was my teacher, introducing me to the world on late night radio talk show. From Miami and then Washington. When I returned from Viet Nam I became an over the road truck driver, drove nights and was educated, enlightened and entertained By Larry King and all the other talk show hosts on late night radio. Thank you Sir.
Thank you Larry for asking the right questions to the guests I always needed answers. God Bless.
Great show.. 25 years has come too short, for your show to end. Loved seeing such a great interviewer, with such class! It certainly will not be the same.
Larry we'll miss ya pal.. No one can take your place.
You are extraordinary. You have interviewed all types of people with all levels of fame, fortune and circumstance and you treated each person with respect, dignity, compassion, and empathy even while asking the tough question. You are amazing and prove that we can choose to be civil, kind and fair to each other. You always show regard for the humanity of every person you have had on your show. That has been remarkable, an amazing accomplishment.
Thank you for the wonderful, interesting, entertaining interviews.
God Bless you in your future endeavors. I will miss you so much.
You are definitely the "King" of TV! My family and I would all drive crazy in order to get home from work so we could view your show. You are the Best!!! We all love you Larry and you will be missed by this family.
Larry King your a legend buddy i grew up watching you down to my grandparents place and here now i lie on my bed watching your last show and still can't believe your retiring. wish you all the best!
I have been watching your show for a looooong time. All the best to you and everyone will miss you.
More years ago than I care to remember I drove taxi in the city of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. I was just kid doing the night shift and managed to tune in to a Seattle,WA radio station and listen to "late night with Larry King" on what I think was the old Mutual Broadcast System. It was an eye opener to the world around me. He will be missed. Best Regards, Robert
Those n number of kids and the youth of the world who have been raised by you through your work will always find you around them wherever they work. I tell my students of Business Administration, Computer Application and Engineering classes that if they have to learn the art of communication they must learn it from you and not from me. I as a reasonably faculty in demand of Business Communication just teach my students what you teach me, Larry. Nothing more, an honest career trick disclosed here. I do the same when I train art of facing interviews to civil service aspirants and whoever I train how to communicate. It's not just that that the older generation people will miss you for their time; leaders will miss you for their job; America will miss you for her voice; youth will miss you for their upbringing; kids will miss you for the premature maturity; common people and house wives with elite taste will miss you as the best .... it is also a fact that you yourself will miss the rest of the potential you have to groom us.
When you announced retirement I had called you Dad (as I fancy doing with a couple of others too) who I really admire. So Daddy, do not miss the rest of your best potential. I predict, your post retirement work will be your best work and you will remembered for thousands of years for your post retirement works and people will see the archive of your 25 years of work to know who the legend was who did so much post retirement.
Daddy! Do not get anyone get onto your nerves. Please do not let the crooks let you down by telling your stories about your loved ones for you know us more than we know we ourselves- not the crooks who will try to come on your way.
Daddy! Be very selective about who you mix with post retirement. Develop the ability to avoid abruptly people who try to upset you. You don't have to earn by tolerating people you are talking to!
Love you Daddy,
A child (not by blood)
Larry, You will be never forgotten.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, we will miss you! You have a gorgeous family, enjoy them!
Watching your last show, I keep hearing guests mention your 25 years and I know they mean TV, but you were so known for your radio interviews way, way longer than that. My Dad lived in Wilmington Del.
He was totally blind. He would go to bed early and get up in time to listen to your late night radio show. It was one of his favorite things to do. He liked to share all the news he heard from you and your guests.
Thanks Larry King,we will miss you.You brought us light and indeed
you were good in what you did.Your shoes will be too much to fill.
On behalf of Ethiopian and African people, I would like to say Thank you! for showing us the dignity in TV; even though, we experience only half of your tv life. I can only imagine the effect it would have been on the Ethipian and African or may be the rest of the world people had we experienced you from the begining.
Thank you again.
After tonight the LKL studio lights may dim, but will still shine in the hearts and minds for many years to come. Good luck and go safely onto your next journey..Viva la Larry King...the gentle man that wears suspenders to carry a heavy load...
Your the ambassador of beverly hills
You're looking great as usual in your Black, Yellow and Red attire. What a way to end your 25 years on CNN with Bill Maher who is one of your favorite people. He does make you laugh and your viewers as well.
Sorry to see you go be it temporary. In the past years when I commenced viewing your show as long as I was indoors, come 9:00 pm, Toronto time, I would switch to Larry King Live. I always enjoyed your shows. You will be missed.
It was also a pleasure seeing you with your suspenders, a unique attire. We will always remember you and your attire.
I loved commenting on certain topics as those controversial ones and US politics too! :) I thank you for allowing my comments on your Blog.
I wish you good luck in all your future undertakings. Keep well and healthy. Looking forward to seeing you again sometime on CNN.
You have done well and excelled.
A hardworking person as you who loved your work, I can visualize you keeping busy. Never cease except to take a rest, a vacation, now and then.
I bet your fans worldwide, as I would love to be present at your Retirement Party in Los Angeles. Well, we are present in spirit.
A New Year will soon be upon us. Therefore, I wish you and your family an Enjoyable, Happy, Healthy and Peaceful New Year 2011 and in the future.
God bless you always Larry!
You are journalism! Thank you for your wonderful wit and wisdom. You will surely be missed.
HI larry ,
we will miss your top gun interviews, we hope you have a happy and healthy retirement. enjoy your children.
We enjoyed what you brought to us each evening
Long live the King! Larry, the whole world will miss you!
LARRY KING KING OF CNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am watching your last show as I write this. I watch you almost every night. It just won't be the same. I am crying and I don't cry. You are special and I can not see the show without you. You have a way with people that takes a certain kind of person and that cannot be replaced. I understand that it is time for you to do other things in your life. You are on top of you game. I admire you and I want you to wish you the best and I look foward to seeing your specials and anything else that you may do in the future. Love Ya!! Laurie
I am going to miss my nights watching you Larry....
Thank you for 25 years of fantastic shows. No one can own a candle to Mr. Larry King. Good Luck, much happiness to you & your family in the up coming years. God Bless,
You have a great family Larry. How time flies! Your two sons are grown up. It looks like one of them might follow in your footsteps. He must have been viewing you every night on LKL and also those who were on your shows. He is a good imitator of people.
Of course, as always, tonight is an enjoyable great show and a great send-off for you which you deserve.
Larry old soldiers never die they just fade away .
Many thanks for 25 enjoyable years. I have always looked forward to your show and your distinguished and wondrous example for all Americans. Wishing you many years of enjoyment in your retirement. Hopefully you will visit CNN periodically! Miss you Larry!!!
Thank You Larry!!!
It's a shame the gentle pass on while the aggressive thrive. We need more civil discourse and less blowhards
I can't imagine the coming days, weeks, months without the LKL !
I grew up watching you, I began watching the LK show back in Tanzania !
After I finished high school and my Dad and I used to watch your great show! I'm sure as he watches your last show beack in Tanzania! the good memories flashes back!
So I wish You the very best!! in the next phase of your endeavor.
So long Larry! Enjoy your retirement and thanks for a great show!
Larry, Your show has been the star show on CNN, here in the USA & the world over for a quarter century!! Can you believe that!! All good things come to an end. Great that you have been able to call the end when you are still active & have many years of active life ahead.
Good luck . I am going to miss you show. Maybe you can put together a DVD collection of the classic interviews
God Bless you Larry!
Larry and Wendy, you've probably heard this a million times but I haven't checked your most recent posts since I've never commented on blogs but I will really miss seeing Larry King Live and all the great guests the show had. Yikes what news show will I find thats as entertaining, educating and non-offensive as your show. Kudos to you 25 yrs. I just finished coaching 20 yrs, I get it. That time will be filled tomorrow. The kids can't wait.
Thank you for all the years, just saw your son do an imitation of you so cool, Have enjoyed you have turned you off depending on guest, but then turning back to see what you did with the guest. You are a Class Act.
LOVED the zipper joke with Bill Clinton, that will come up tomorrow on the news never new about it but it was one of the best parts of the show as well as Katie Curics poem. Go enjoy what you have earned, you can not stay away you will be back but to coin a phrase "Thanks for the Memories"
Enjoy your family~~!
I can't imagine the coming days, weeks, months without the LKL !
I grew up watching you, I began watching the LK show back in Tanzania !
After I finished high school and my Dad and I used to watch your great show! I'm sure as he watches your last show back in Tanzania! the good memories flashes back!

Thank you Larry for a wonderful, informative and interesting show. Sorry you had to go, but I look forward to seeing you on air again. All the best for the future, enjoy your family and allow God to guide you into His plan for your life.
Larry, i started watching your show 12 yrs ago and been watching it ever since, i wish nothing but the best for you and your family... You will be truly missed, and nobody can ever replace you.... god bless, and thank you for 25 great yrs, the best is yet to come....
Larry, I'm going to miss listening to your informative interviews every evening. I have been a loyal follower since you've been on CNN. I sincerely hope this isn't a retirement, but I do understand having more time to spend with your family. Larry, you are a class act. I can't imagine anyone filling your shoes. Best wishes.
Mr. King thank you for all of those years you gave us. through you, and some others, you made it possible for us to see and hear from many stars and celebrities. please take a rest break , and then come back. and last but not least, spare me a pair of your suspenders, please, make them available if at all possible, again, you are a scholar and a gentleman, you did television the way television was suppose to be done.show up some times.
I enjoyed your show for all these years. May you have good health and enjoy your semi retirement. As I told my children when they left home never forget who you are and where and who you came from.
We are only in control of our actions and reactions. G- will handle the rest. Thanks for bringing us the news and for the pop culture.
We will see you later on the next set.
Wow Larry even the President took his time to congratulate you, I can tell you was taking by it, so was I. I will defiantly miss you, good luck to you and your family,
Larry,thanks for being there so many nights I loved meeting your wife,shawn and her mother which at Compassionate Friends convention. All of you had such good encouraging words to say which meant so much to a bereaved mother. You will never be forgotten. You are really th
E man of the year. W. S. Roe
Thank you for showing up with family and Tony Bennett.
I am happy you stay with family like that.
You encourage me a lot.
We want to have a baby between us too like you.
And if I could be a rich like you, it would be so fantastic.
My one of dream is that we own winery that my husband grandparents used to own but one of relative ate up their money, he said.
I have a troublesome one or two relatives too, but
I want to make it with my husband to keep and increase money to do.
And nice Spanish style house with a pool and park yard.
It sounds really small dream for you, but I want to make it with my husband.
I don't want to be interrupted by anybody.
You have in movies and TV screen of International Air ports.
I came from Japan but I am an independent , not to belong to J companies.
I am not in Japanese community but I love to socialize any people in USA.
I appreciate anything to learn here, and I learnt a lot through you too.
Criss Angel, was he really insane ? Or trick?
So many amazing things in USA.
God bless you !
It was another enjoyable show Larry!!
Your regular appearance will be missed-My father loved you and watched you nightly and I have done so too.
Best wishes. Enjoy your next adventure, I am sure your family will!
We look forward to seeing you again soon on CNN!!:)
Larry, I am so sad to see you leave the program. My mother, who died in May 09 was a huge fan of yours and every time I visited her, we watched Larry King Live. She was a very smart woman who kept up with current events, and watched you faithfully. I started watching you regularly after her death as a way to stay connected to her. I will miss that connection and feel like you're leaving is a significant event in my resolution of losing her. You were a very significant person in her life and also in mine. Best wishes to you and hope I can catch your future programs. Thanks Larry!
I so wished that Larry could re-tell those extremely funny stories that I heard him tell on night time radio at least 40 years ago. Especially the one about when he worked as a salesman, selling what he called 'baby tendas'. This was home sales and he would take the baby tendas into the homes and set them up before the parents of the little one. He set one up wrong, and the 'baby tenda' had a spring and flipped the baby out of tenda. I shall never forget some of those stories. I really wished he could tell them again.
I will surely miss you !!!
I have been watching your show for years. I am originally from Jordan and must tell you that people watched your show half way around the world. Thank you for your graciousness and inspiration.
larry THE KING I love you so much, you bring respect to us and your guests, smart, funny, the only good show that you can watch this days is going to be hard not to have you, you will be miss by this family for ever.
I have been watching your show ever since it started. Best wishes on your retirement it's time to enjoy your loving wife and family. You will be missed dearly.
Larry. you were and always will be the king of television, a king who could reach into the hearts of all who sat with you and shared their innermost thoughts. A unique and fine humane, human being!!! No one could ever fill your shoes. With a tear in my eye, I bid you fond farewell, God Bless you and keep you in your new journey. So long, we will miss you.
Larry, thank you for bringing into our home your wisdom, wit and celebrity's for over 20 years! There is no one out there to fill your suspenders! You'll be missed and many of your viewers along with myself remain hopeful you'll be back from time to time with another outstanding hour with Larry King Live.
Smith in Oregon
Since my husband's passing..you've helped me with my grief..your show was something to look forward to every night..loved the Fr/ Sinatra interview 12 or 13 yrs ago....you're a class act, Larry..missed seeing one of your favorite people on your show tonight, former Gov. Mario Cuomo of NYState....We LOVE you,,we'll miss you,,Just keep Healthy & Happy ! Love,,G ...
Larry King is a gentleman of honest mind. And a gentleman always knows when to leave. Mr. King, from the depths of our faithful hearts, we extend warm affections, sincere gratitude, and large respects. Thank you and good luck. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Dear Larry! I came to US three years ago and I did not know you or your show before (just heard about it couple times). But I can tell you this ... I was always looking forward to make myself comfortable in front of a TV and watch you and your guests. I learned a lot .. at the beginning I've got very little from the shows but as I improved my English and I've got to know more and more about all the goings-on here in US I enjoyed your shows more and more ... Your show was my favorite on CNN I am going to miss it a lot. Thank you for all your work! In a sense ... you were my teacher :-) Right now, I am having a glass of my best whiskey to your tribute! I wish you long years of great life to enjoy with your family!
Larry King, you are an absolute treasure!! Your 25 years of work is incredible, and through your informative and insightful shows, guests and your brilliant interviews, you have provided our nation and the world with enormous benefits which will last forever.
Thank you so much, Larry!! So long friend–I wish you, your family and your many friends and fans all of the best!!!
Larry, I will really miss you. You have provided great entertainment for me for a very long time. No one is relaxed as you with the 50, 000 interviews you have done.You are bigger than life..yet as ordinary as blueberry pie.May you live a thousand years! Mazel tov ! And good luck!
Larry, I will miss you greatly. I have been a fan of yours for many, many years. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and family.
Thanks for all the great interviews over the years, Larry. I wish you and your family all the best and look forward to seeing you in many places, including Vegas! The best is yet to come no doubt.
Thank you for the interviews Larry! We'll miss you, I wish you all the best!
I'll add my thanks for all the years of enjoyment Larry. You are the best. It's very telling that no one is saying anything negative about you. Not many people could go out like that. Enjoy your retirement. We'll never forget you and look forward to your specials.
"There's an end to every beginning, & a beginning to every end" ..God Bless Larry King...You are blessed w/so many people sending you our love & best wishes & blessings for the very best of Health ahead for many yrs..
Larry, I was teary-eyed watching your last show. I am going to miss you terribly. You are the one show I look forward to watching every single night. I know there comes a time you have to hang it up and enjoy other things but you will be truly missed!!!!!! I look forward to seeing you occasionally in the future. So long and God Bless to the BEST!!!!
What a true legend, LARRY, YOU'LL BE MISSED!! One of my all time favorite show!!
We will miss you
Simply the best
Thank you Larry! So many great interviews. I still don't know what I will do without you. I have watched for most of the years you've been on. You will be missed. Enjoy all that extra time with your family. God bless you Larry
We have recorded Larry's shows the last year.....my 20 year old daughter made sure....the one show we have common. I feel like everyone....such a loss...What do we watch now?
His boys....what a tribute they gave him tonite. That's the best.
We love you, Larry, Sue and Jordan
Larry I always felt that the height of success is being interviewed by you. Now I missed my chance ha ha ha.
Love ya and will miss you terribly.
Larry, you have been incredible for the last 25 years. Though I've only watched you for about 10 of those years, I can easily say that you will go far...even without the show. May God blees you, may the wind be at you back, a smile be on your face, and here's hoping that things from tonight on as as great as things before and during the show.
We will miss you. *cries*
We missed you Larry.. You were Inspirational.
Larry, you're irreplaceable. Sad for me; happy for you. Congratulations on your remarkable achievements and thanks from the heart.
I started watching you from the beginning, I was 19 years old and now I am almost 44 from a little town in the Dominican Republic, Santiago. I remember getting CNN and MTV from the beginnng. I practically grew up with you. I was always mezmerized by the way you interviewed. If everyone learned to listen like you do, we would have a more peaceful world. I have lived in Miami for the past 23 years and continued watching you. Thank you for the one hour a night we looked forward to. Hope you enjoy your time off!
Cheers! Lissette C.
Au Revoir, compagnon de minuit!
CNN won't be the same without "The King." Thanks Larry for entertaining us all for so many years. I will miss your show, but I look forward to seeing you again soon on television, whatever the format. God Bless You, and Happy Holidays.
Thank you Larry for all the years of entertainment. I remember one night on your late night radio show in the 60's a woman in NY called and said a burgular was at her door . You got her address of the air and sent the police to her house . She was so grateful for your concern and act of kindness. . I'll allways remember the many good things you have done for so many people .
Tonight, I stayed late to watch the last show of Larry King live after 25 years with CNN. What a historic night and congratulations to Larry. It is all about building an empire thorough the years ! A good path to follow...
Thank you so much
Thank you so much
God bless you!

Love your show,, will miss you 2 much.. Am writing from Saudi Arabia. Riyadh. Wish you happy life.
Larry, you have always been a conversationalist, not a confrontationalist like most others in the business. I appreciate that and will miss it greatly. All the best and I look forward to the first Larry King Special.
You have been an icon in tv entertainment and interviewing for so many years, and we the public have been blessed. My mother has watched you faithfully for 25 years, and she is now 82 years old. I have watched your show as long as I can remember as well. I uprooted my entire life in Manhattan this year to move to Seattle, and move Mom to Seattle, so that we can move her near at least 2 of her kids (I have a brother in Seattle). At our most homesick moments for NYC possible, we tuned in to Larry and it made everything ok. Your voice and show have been a comfort, and I'm not sure how we'll go on without you. Larry, thank you, thank you, thank you so much. There will never be another Larry King Live. Ever. And I'm so grateful I lived in an era where I was lucky enough to experience you.
You'll always be Larry the King

and forever to say goodbye--Author unknown.
So long Larry.
I lived in Miami many years and remember your radio show, which I enjoyed. I have been a fan of your show since the beginning and it has become the one show I look forward to watching each night. I will sure miss you, but wish you all the best.
My father has been listening to you since you were on radio and through him I came to know who you are.
You've interviewed the most celebrated, controverscial, misunderstood, and notorious figures in the world and beyond.
You've covered the most talked about things in the news and done a lot to help those in need with your fund raising specials.
The thing that makes you different from your other interviewers is that you keep you guest relaxed and make them feel comfrontable. (Which is now a rarity nowadays.)
Thank you, Merci.
I'll miss seeing you everynight and I can't wait to see your specials.
Much love and may God bless and help you in your retirement along with your family.
Bringing you love from Nigeria, i watch ur shows from here and i must say that i'm impressed at your performance out there, you're indeed a gem, wishing all the best and hey! we're expecting more. cheers in blessings
Thank You Larry für years of great Infotainment.
I loved your show.
Best Regards from Vienna, Austria.
The end of a Legend with 25 years on TV and over a 50 000 interviews and meetings with world's famous and influential people. These like Larry King are only several people in the world, who makes the real television. One of them is the Bulgarian TV legend Kevork Kevorkian with the same TV expеrience – 25 years in National Television's show "Every Sunday".
Larry, this is a great moment! I would expect this day someone is taking your interview ;-) Someone would ask you questions like you did for 25 years..
Long live Larry...!!
Greetings from snowy Belgium...
From Bosnia. I watch everyday.
As an American overseas you bring me home on a daily basis.

Miss You suspender man
Larry King your the King, we will me you. Your irreplacable. Wish you a happier life with your family
Larry King is an institution. we admire your exceptional listening skills, its indeed second to none. Thanx Larry and so long.

I have watched Larry King live for 10 years. When I was working on a ship you were the only constant root that I had. Your show was always interesting, knowledgable and entertaining. You were always humble and your forte was your compassion when a death occurred or tragedy unfolded. Last night's show was great but it was your sons who brought tears to my eyes with their thoughts and impressions of you. Enjoy your family and your life. I will miss you!
Dear Larry, I am from Austria and have been watching your show whenever possible! You're fantastic and together with your fans from all over the worldI wish you all the best for the future! You'll be missed...
A befitting farewell tribute tonight for the King of Kings which left me in tears.
I don't know how I will spend my evening now without your show. Never missed it. Even If I am away, I will record it.
I learnt so much about America from you and the regular commentators here .
To me today represents the end of an era of effortless broadcasters who got people talking without being harangued like Ms Couric said.
Please auction off your suspenders and the money received be given to world charity.
That will be a fitting memory of the only one in suspenders.
There aren't words enough to express
My thanks to you for sharing your life with such grace for
so many years.
my sadness that you are not going to be on CNN regularly
Here in Germany, I tuned in to your show at 11:00 am in the morning. I am going to miss you so much along with so many millions of other people throughout the world–I am grateful you've b een there for 25 years interviewing interesting people, adding your perceptive comments, laughing in your inimitable way, but now comes the hard part - to be without your presence - one of the pleasures of life has been taken away.
It's with good reason the greats in broadcasting publicly applaud you today - we have so few of your stature. The poem by Diane Sawyer brought tears to my eyes - it is a big gift of love.
Your boys are great (though I can imagine sometimes your persona was challenging for them as you were in the limelight every day - also your wife). Now remember your interview last week with Bon Jovi - that his wife and his kids pay no attention to his "sexiest man status"!
Viel glück and much love,
I will miss you a lot....what am I supposed to do at 9....
Congratulations on your 25 years! I first started watching your show with my mother, Esther. She watched your show all the time. I watched different shows and different channels all the time. However, for about 17 years, my mother and I spent time together watching your show, commenting on your guests and the discussions. We thought your show was informative and entertaining!

Thank you Larry! Watching 25 Years in 3 minutes I saw President Nixon and remembered his words: "you are here to say goodbye to us, but we don't have a good word for it in English – the best is au revoir. Hope we'll see you again"
Will miss you, you are the King of TV at night. May you and yours always be blessed. I hope to never miss any of whatever you do in the future. Have watched you for many years and was always entertained. So long, come back soon:)
I was glad I got to watch your show in the last couple years and before you retired. They have always been interesting and you just had that special touch – a human touch. I have felt like I have known you forever.
Hang on to those suspenders now, they might be worth a lot, lol.
Enjoy the rest of your life Larry and more free time and time with your family. Well deserved!
I will end by saying thanks for everything and for the memories, and they are not making them like you anymore, I don't think. God bless!
Larry, my regret is not appearing in any of your shows. Even a phone call to you guests will do. Haha.
But I cling to the memory of having two of my comments aired in the crawl column of your show.
So long. May you always be with us, your fans.

Your grace and dignity filled our living room every night for 24 years. You became a family member which we would listen to nightly. You will be so missed by this family.

We will miss you so much. You have been an inspiration to everyone here in Narvik, Norway. Thank you so much for so many years of devotion. God Bless
I belong to a team who brought in a TV to our work place so we could watch your show during our break! Your generous demeanor is exemplary! Have a wonderful retirement and enjoy your family.
Larry, an Icon on LKL – CNN.
Your finale was an extremely moving one. I could not help but shed a few tears. It was as though I had lost a relative, a friend, be it that they were traveling overseas.
The darkened picture of your speaker was indeed touching. My words are insufficient to express my feelings viewing it. It was a fitting end to a great one, Larry "King" Live for 25 years.
Yes! You will be missed and are already missed. Can anyone replace you and the person whom you are? I doubt it – never.
It is stated that two mountains never meet but two people may meet. Who knows, someday, as I always say, if the Good Lord wills, my family, friends and I may catch a glimpse of you in Los Angeles when we visit there.
With sincere feelings, once again, good luck and Au Revoir. May God take good care of you.
Wishing you the best in life Larry as you certainly gave us your best! I would often discuss your wonderful program at work the next day with co-workers. Everyone always said how much they love you and your program. Gotta Love those suspenders. Whenever I see suspenders on a man.... I think of "YOU" : )

"ROAD TO PEACE" (film short story)
Opening Scene: (filmed in black & white, silent film)
We see an old Soldier walking down a dirt road with a machine gun under his arm
and carrying his young son on his shoulders.
The young boy and his father are dressed in their combat clothing and the boy
also has a machine gun gun tucked under his arm, suddenly they stop.
(our camera pans to a person sitting on a large rock on the side of the road)
We see the back of this person only, the person is wearing a black hooded robe
with their hood raised up.
(we pan back to the old soldier and his son)
The old soldier places his son on the road then pushes him in the direction
of the hooded stranger.
The young boy walks cautiously up to the stranger with his gun drawn upwards
as he gets closer we notice the person is small in stature then the boy points
the gun at the back of the strangers head.
The stranger turns around slowly then we see it is a young girl, the girl is
the same age as the boy.
The young girl places a daisy in the barrel of the boy's gun.
(at that instant our film changes to color and remains in color)
Next, we see they young boy standing there with a blank look on his face he then
drops the gun on the ground, the gun vanishes and where the gun was we see
three books there instead.
The boy picks up the books curiously, then turns and looks in the direction
where his father was with an astonishment look.
(we show a close-up on boys face then we pan our camera to the father)
The boy's father is now standing there dressed in a white shirt and slacks and
holding sets of plans tucked under his arm in the place of a gun.
(we pan back to boy and girl)
We see the boy standing there dressed in the same attire as his father, with
three books tucked under his arm in place of his gun staring at the girl that is
still sitting on the rock, the girl has long curly brown hair and is now wearing
white clothing, she also has three books sitting next to her.
We see the backs of all three of them walking down the road towards the setting
sun, the boy and the girl are holding hands both of them carrying three books
tucked under their arms.
The father has three sets of building plans tucked under his arm and is walking
with his head up high..

(I Dedicate My Film Short Idea to Larry King Who Always Has The Ability To Make People Think About Their Actions)
Dear Larry, Amazing - your career and dedication to informing the world on all matters. Thank you. Most of all, thank you for being one of the very few media sources that gave my son a worldwide platform for spreading a message of hope and peace that he held in his heart. You had no personal agenda other than the gift of giving my son that worldwide platform, and helping people everywhere have access to this mesage. Many folks say "Mattie J.T. Stepanek inspires me." You, Larry, never hesitated to mention Mattie, or to allow him to share his heart in a powerful way, or to speak of his unfolding legacy since his death. You backed your words of admiration with action, and never hesitated to stand by those words and actions in a public
way. For that, I am forever appreciative, and you have my personal and professional respect. May the future unfold in many good ways for you and you family. And may you realize more reasons to smile than to sigh as you reflect back upon each day.
Peace, and love, and appreciation,
Jeni Stepanek ("Mattie's mom").

I started enjoying Larry's show back in 2000 during my stay in the US to study English. I am writing all the way from Brazil to say that I am sad to see him go : (
Hi larry we are from ethiopia and we are proud a american. All our families are in va, we know about cnn and even we are in remote area. I am amazed when people compare cnn w/ another cables .cnn is number 1. We love u larry
I hAVE ALREADY WRITTEN THIS. FORGOT TO ENTER MY NAME AND EMAIL. THIS IS MY QUESTION. THIS IS THE ANSWER I REQUEST.
Cannot find remarks by Sting on WINTER alluded to December 24th.
Your help would be appreciated.
Many thanks for years of pleasure keeping company with Larry.
Yours truly, Sandra Stone
Larry, my mom and I miss your shows so much and no one, no one will ever replace you! Your shows were educational, entertaining and we had the opportunity to see dignitaries and the like, because of your show. Please stay well, enjoy your family and God bless you! I will miss your shows always. My mom always referred to you as the man with the suspenders – you are very special! I just want you to know that I choked in tears during your last show – it was very difficult to know there would be no more Larry King shows. I look forward in seeing you do your specials in the future.
Respectfully – a fan who admires you so much for your credibiilty, professionalism and humanitarian. God bless you – cmn
Remember Lafayette HS in Bensonhurst? You were behind me for 3 years.
I didn't want to disturb you while you were working but now that you're retired I figured you'd have the time.
Lots of Luck
