The final episode of CNN’s Larry King Live will end much the same way it began nearly 26 years ago.
Primetime’s favorite suspenders-clad interviewer will sign off with the same guest he started his show with in 1985 — former New York Governor Mario Cuomo, tipsters told HollywoodLife.com this week.
“[My final interview] is the same person I started the show off with. [It will be 52nd Governor of New York] Mario Cuomo, the first guest 25-and-a-half years ago. We’re flying him out to LA to do the show.”
The final episode of Larry King Live will air on CNN on Dec. 16, 2010. Last week, the network announced that it has inked a multimillion-dollar deal to have America’s Got Talent judge Piers Morgan take over King’s 9 PM timeslot with the introduction of a new talk show in Jan. 2011.
