Larry King Says ‘So Long’

Larry King went out with a bang.

Tonight, on the final episode of “Larry King Live,” the veteran newsman, 77, welcomed a slew of guests, including Bill Maher, Ryan Seacrest, Donald Trump, Regis Philbin, Dr. Phil McGraw, Suze Orman and Tony Bennett.

Ryan Seacrest gave King his first two surprises of the night by introducing California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who proclaimed Thursday “Larry King Day,” followed by President Barack Obama, who congratulated King on opening America’s eyes beyond their living rooms.

Comedian Fred Armisen dressed as King to “grill” the host, and was followed by news anchors Barbara Walters, Katie Couric, Brian Williams and Diane Sawyer, who presented King with goodbye suspenders.

Former President Bill Clinton — who has been a guest on “Larry King Live” 28 times — appeared live from Little Rock, Ark., to wish King a fond farewell.

King noted that although he was leaving his nightly CNN show, he would continue to do specials for CNN and other projects on radio and television.

“You’re not going to see me go away,” said a teary-eyed King during his final address. “Instead of goodbye, how about so long.”
