Broadcast veteran Larry King announced on Tuesday that he would be ending his nightly "Larry King Live" show on CNN this coming autumn after 25 years on television.


King, 76, said in a statement he would still host specials for CNN on major events, but wanted to spend more time with his wife and young children.

Known for his non-confrontational style and for wearing colored suspenders, King has interviewed a broad array of guests from Hollywood stars to politicians and athletes.

"With this chapter closing I'm looking forward to the future and what my next chapter will bring, but for now it's time to hang up my nightly suspenders," King told viewers on Tuesday night's show.

"Larry King Live" recently made the Guinness Book of World Records for having the longest running show with the same host in the same time slot.

King and his seventh wife, Shawn Southwick, called off their plans to divorce in May and reunited.
