London: "America`s Got Talent" judge Piers Morgan is reportedly in talks to replace Larry King as the host of the chat show "Larry King Live".
"CNN bosses have been desperately searching for somebody to revamp the show. Larry`s ratings are massively down year on year and Piers is just the chap (man)," dailymail.co.uk quoted a source as saying.
"Piers is utterly thrilled by the prospect of the deal and knows that taking over the Larry King show means that something will have to give. `America`s Got Talent` finishes in mid-September, so it seems Larry will be moved to a weekend show then and be ousted from his nightly prime-time slot.
"Piers has discussed it all with Simon Cowell, who gave him his big break on `America`s Got Talent` and `Britain`s Got Talent`, and has his blessing," the source added.
