      |

      New York (ANI): Piers Morgan, the 'Simon Cowell" of NBC's 'America's Got Talent", may take over American TV host Larry King"s slot on CNN, according to a report. Morgan is reportedly on the brink of announcing he will be taking over King's interview chair on CNN.

      NBC and CNN are in the final stages of negotiating a major deal, which would allow Morgan to appear on both programs, according to The New York Times Media Decoder blog. Morgan, usually known in the US for his sharp-edged criticism, has also honed his interviewing skills with popular shows like 'You Can't Fire Me, I''m Famous," and 'Piers Morgan's Life Stories," both of which featured Morgan interviewing celebrities.

      His was the most probable candidate for Larry King"s replacement after King announced that he would be stepping down from his anchor seat. “Piers Morgan is a very talented interviewer. But there are a number of strong interviewers out there, a number of talented people," The New York Daily News quoted CNN president Jon Klein as saying.

      “The 9 p.m. hour is the linchpin of any success in cable news. As a cable channel, it tells viewers who you are and what you care about," Tammy Haddad, a former producer of 'Larry King Live" said.
