Larry King Announced: I'm ending LKL this fall

Larry King is stepping down after 25 year.

The Broadcast veteran announced last night on air that he would be ending his nightly Larry King Live show this autumn after 25 years.

King, 76, said in a statement on his show that he would still host specials for CNN on major events but wanted to spend more time with his wife and young children.

Known for his non-confrontational style and for wearing coloured braces, King has interviewed a broad array of guests from Hollywood stars to politicians and athletes.

'With this chapter closing I'm looking forward to the future and what my next chapter will bring, but for now it's time to hang up my nightly suspenders,' King told viewers on tonight's show.

Larry King Live recently made the Guinness Book of World Records for having the longest running show with the same host in the same time slot.
