Larry King -- Divorcing Show After 25 Years

6/29/2010 7:37 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0629_larry_king_EXD_TMZ_2Larry King is pulling the plug on "Larry King Live" after 25 years on the air -- and LK insiders insist it was Larry's decision.

King just took to his Twitter to announce: "I’m ending my nightly show this fall but continuing at CNN."  Larry will be doing specials and would like to focus on sports stories.

He wrote in another message, "It's time to hang up my nightly suspenders."

CNN sources tell TMZ they're in talks "with a number of people" and they expect to make a decision on Larry's replacement in 2 to 4 weeks.

Sources tell us Larry made the decision in the last 24 hours.

There's been a buzz that King might not be renewed when is contract is up because of low ratings.

From the comments I take it I was not the only one to change the channel.He was so hard to watch. CNN has been off at my home for the last few months due to the "talent" on the screen. It is bad and people are letting CNN know. I hope they listen and get some better people on the screen. Some of the traveling guys and girls are better than the on air "talent". okay then...

Normally, I wish no one ill. But you wise a----- who are predjudiced against anyone over 60, I wish you all the problems that old age can bring, including the sneers and jibes that you have shown an icon like Larry King. You couldn't tie his shoelaces. Will miss you ,Larry!

As Larry King is retiring at the grand old age of 76 I recommend him to read the recently published book on Mahatma Gandhi - THE LAST FAST BY SK SHRAVAN - available for purchase from Amazon Book Store [try this link: amazon.com / last fast]. Here is the Press Release -

THE LAST FAST
The True Story of the Assassination of Mahatma Gandhi

BY SK SHRAVAN

04 / 07 / 2010

The book gives a day-to-day account of the last eighteen days in Mahatma Gandhi’s life and describes the events that lead to his killing. It tells why a preacher of non-violence met his death by violence, and the real motive of his killer. And what he said in the court to justify his ‘holier-than-thou’ act.

The book reveals the victim’s last words to put an end to all the tittle-tattle created by his followers and the government of the day soon after his death sixty-two years ago.

One book editor wrote ‘clearly the author had done a great deal of research before writing this extraordinary story – a truly engaging read.’

The author speaks the native tongue of Mahatma’s assassin so he was better placed to understand his mind and how it worked. The assassin was not a madcap; he was a newspaper editor with no past record and the patriot of the highest order.

The assassin told his accomplices, there were cir***stances when killing could be justifiable for all the right reasons. The author’s goal is to tell the whole truth behind the assassination of an apostle of non-violence.

The author was born in India. He was educated in Bombay as well as in London. He came to England in the late 1960...s and lives in Hertfordshire. ‘The Last Fast’ is his first book, written after taking an early retirement at the age of sixty.

The book is now available from Amazon Book Store [www.amazon.co.uk / last fast]
