"The Larry Kudlow Report" will end its run on CNBC later this month, the network said on Friday, with host Larry Kudlow staying on as a senior contributor.

"Larry expressed his love of the network and personal pride in what had been accomplished on his program over the years but now wanted to slow down just a bit," the network's president, Mark Hoffman, told staff in a memo on Friday. "As an interviewer, he is unfailingly polite and energetic, skillfully grilling guests but always ending a segment graciously.

"Larry has always brought great enthusiasm to every program and appearance," Hoffman said.

The CNBC executive did not say what would replace Kudlow's program — only that the network was "working on plans" for the 7 p.m. Eastern time slot.

Kudlow, 66, will contribute to the "Business Day" program on CNBC, Hoffman said.

In January 2009, "The Kudlow Report" succeeded "Kudlow & Company," which aired from 2005 until October 2008. Before that, starting in 2002, the program was called "Kudlow & Cramer" — with investment guru Jim Cramer as co-host — and from 2001 to 2002, the program was called "America Now."

Featuring a mixture of business and politics, Kudlow's program hosted such guests as former President George W. Bush, former Vice President Dick Cheney, former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, and current Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel.

Some of his guests from the business world have included media mogul Barry Diller and energy investor T. Boone Pickens.

A columnist and radio program host, Kudlow served in the Office of Management and Budget during the Ronald Reagan White House, worked as chief economist at Bear Stearns on Wall Street, and served as an economist for the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
