NEW YORK (AP) — Larry King pulls the curtain down on his CNN talk show, "Larry King Live," after 25 years on Thursday, cable television's once dominant voice now faded in a sea of sharp talkers.

The 77-year-old King said this summer he would "hang up his nightly suspenders," ushered to the door by a struggling network. British talk-show host and "America's Got Talent" judge Piers Morgan takes over the 9 p.m. Eastern time slot in January.

Ryan Seacrest was booked as the ringmaster for King's finale. King has conducted some 50,000 interviews in a broadcasting career where he worked for decades in radio before joining CNN in 1985. He's recorded more than 6,000 shows for CNN.

It's been a muted exit for King, with CNN touting Morgan's upcoming show in ads more than King's.
