Larry King Successor
Contest Directions: After a great deal of back-room arrangements CNN confirmed that "America's Got Talent" judge, Piers Morgan will replace Larry King early next year. However, not everyone agrees with the CNN's pick for next "Mr. Suspenders", including Larry. In the interview to CBS News, Larry King said "I have no say in my successor, but hire Ryan Seacrest!" But who can ever really replace King? The Brooklyn-born Larry Zeiger rose to prominence as a Miami disc jockey, national radio host and talk, and went from zero to hero, with his stooped shoulders, owlish eyeglasses and trademark suspenders. When King signs off, the show will never be the same...
In this contest we are going to help possible (and impossible) Larry King successors partially look like Larry King. Take the right (or left) VERTICAL HALF of Larry King's face and merge it with the left (or right) vertical half from another celebrity or politician who you think could be a good (or bad) pick for Larry King's successor. We did similar 50/50 vertical face merge in our Partial Face Transplants contest, but this time, one of the celebrities HAS to be Larry King. In your titles or comments please mention the name of celebrity (or politician) you are merging with King.

This contest is fueled by the following news: At last, the TV channel CNN has found the replacement to legendary television anchor Larry King. His talk show, which started in 1985, was continuously broadcasted for almost 25 years. It has even got into the Guinness Book of Records as the longest show on television with an unchanged anchor. During the show "Larry King Live", the journalist interviewed different interesting personalities such as politicians, sportsmen, stars of show business and leading economists. Several US Presidents and leaders of Foreign States had been invited to the show and he conducted more than 40000 interviews. Larry King is 76 years old and in June 2010 he stated that he would stop regular work on TV. King is known to put on new suspenders for each interview, symbolizing informal discussion. It is true that Larry King is also famous for his bad character. He has been married 8 times to seven women (twice to one woman). His present wife is singer Shawn Southwick, and they have two sons. Larry King will be seen for the last time on the show on December 16, 2010. British journalist and TV presenter Piers Morgan will replace Larry King. Piers Morgan is known to Americans as the anchor of the television program "America's Got Talent". He was included in the list of jurors for the television show "Britain's Got Talent" has worked for the newspaper The Sun and the Daily Mirror and currently Piers Morgan is in collaboration with British TV channel ITV1. The popular British journalist and TV host Piers Morgan will replace the master of American television, 76-year-old Larry King in the most popular evening talk show by the broadcasting company CNN. As president of CNN Jon Klein stated, Morgan, a former anchor of gossip columns and editor-in-chief of the London newspaper tabloid the Daily Mirror is "an ideal choice for King's replacement, strengthening the traditions of conversation with well-known people". Morgan, according to Klein is "capable of presenting diversified news with flavor and humor". Morgan in turn said that he watched King's telecasts for the last quarter of a century and that his dream has come true to accept the baton from the "greatest interviewer". "My appointment is a great honor and a huge responsibility" - the Englishman added. The British press said that Morgan is one of the experts of gossip columns. In due course he had to leave the post as editor-in-chief of the "Daily Mirror". This happened after the publication of fabricated photos of humiliating scenes of British soldier's actions towards Iraq war prisoners. Larry King's show has entered the Guinness Book of Records as a program which was telecast continuously for the longest time and at the same time, with same host. Larry King's real name is Lawrence Zeiger. He was born in Brooklyn. The parents of the TV presenter migrated to the USA from Belorussia.
