Piers Morgan 'having trouble obtaining visa' to replace Larry King

CNN has reportedly asked veteran interviewer Larry King to delay his departure from the channel as Piers Morgan, the man tipped to replace him, is having trouble getting a work visa.

The New York Post claimed ‘several sources’revealed that the former Mirror editor and Britain/America’s Got Talent judge was finding it difficult to secure the necessary documentation to take up the post.

The US tabloid reported that King – who was understood to be staying until late October or early November – has been asked to remain in his post ‘until the end of the year”.

News emerged in June that Morgan was on the verge of signing a £10m three-year deal with CNN to take over from 76-year-old King as the news channel’s key interviewer.
