Piers Morgan to take over for Larry King on CNN

Piers Morgan, the well-known, though often caustic, judge on the popular America's Got Talent will replace Larry King on CNN on January 4.

Long rumored as the news network's front-runner, Morgan, 45, will likely bring a more confrontational interview style than the venerable King, whose 25-year-old Larry King Live has suffered a sharp drop in viewership and will end Dec. 16.
