Page Six Doubles Down on Piers Morgan to 9pm on CNN…

After all the CNN denials (though I showed how those denials have a ton of wiggle room), the idea that Page Six would continue down the “Piers Morgan is replacing Larry King” story is a bit shocking. That they name a start date of October is the kind of thing one doesn’t do on “discredited stories” unless there’s really something to it…

British journo Piers Morgan will start his takeover of Larry King’s CNN show in October, sources tell Page Six. The former newspaper editor has a deal to host an hourlong interview program which will start in the fall four days a week as CNN phases King out. He’s also negotiated with NBC to stay on the “America’s Got Talent” judging panel, but is quitting the UK’s “Britain’s Got Talent.” One source said, “Morgan’s UK interview shows, including one where former Prime Minister Gordon Brown broke down in tears, impressed CNN bosses. Morgan’s show will be prerecorded in New York so he can work ’round his other TV commitments.” CNN said in a statement: “We don’t comment on speculation. Rumors that we are close to signing a deal for a Larry King replacement are untrue . . . Larry is a beloved member of the team, and he will continue to be part of the CNN family into the future.”
