“CNN confirms that ‘Piers Morgan Live’ is ending. The date of the final program is still to be determined,” the net said in a statement.
Morgan first broke the news to New York Times columnist David Carr and told him that it’s been a struggle being a Brit debating controversial American topics, especially his strong gun stance. Morgan said the show will probably end in March.
“It’s been a painful period and lately we have taken a bath in the ratings,” Morgan admitted.
The host has been on CNN since January 2011. He took over for Larry King at the 9 p.m. hour.
