Indyplus videos: CNN's Larry King Live

The American TV presenter Larry King signs up for new show with Russia Today. From 1985 to 2010, he hosted the nightly interview programme Larry King Live on CNN.

Watch below some of clips from his show:

Erin Burnett: 'Smart, entertaining, and ahead of the news,' is how CNN describes its 7pm anchor. The public must see things differently, given this respected (but perhaps monochrome) former financial journalist's prime-time show draws only 409,000 viewers - of which a woeful 46,000 belong to the 24-54 demographic that advertisers covet

Thomas Kinkade: US artist whose populist works sold by the million

Thomas Kinkade was America's most prolific and successful popular artist of the last 100 years. Calling himself the "Painter of Light", a term he trademarked, he claimed to have an example of his work in one in 20 of the country's homes. Kinkade turned the production of his sentimentally themed paintings, prints and posters, mugs and calendars into an enterprise, the Media Arts Group, which made him over $50m between 1997 and 2005. Explaining his motivation, he said, "There's been million-seller books and million-seller CDs. But there hasn't been, until now, million-seller art. We have found a way to bring to millions of people an art that they can understand."

Morgan's modest viewing figures give his critics plenty to chat about

For a man who uses Twitter to broadcast his every thought, deed, and minor foray into the public eye, Piers Morgan has been surprisingly slow to update followers about the smattering of fresh headlines that pertain to the performance of his nightly talk show on the rolling news channel CNN.

Sparks fly as Piers Morgan meets his biggest critic: Larry King

As awkward encounters go, it was like sitting next to your ex's younger, and insufferably smug, new partner. After Larry king dismissed Piers Morgan as over-hyped in a radio interview last week, the elder statesman of US broadcasting submitted himself to a grilling by his upstart successor.

Larry King: Morgan 'was oversold'

The veteran US chat show host Larry King has given his verdict on his successor, Piers Morgan: the British former tabloid editor "may have been oversold" to the Americans public, he told BBC Radio 4 .

Brian Viner: I'm a Christmas card failure. Apologies

Every year it happens, with the utter predictability of my children saying no to the Christmas Day sprouts, and my father-in-law to the parsnips. Somewhere around 25 November my mind turns to Christmas cards, and in particular those destined for friends and relatives in the United States and Australia. This year, I assure myself, will be different. The cards travelling to distant lands, with a bespoke accompanying letter and perhaps a clutch of photographs, will be in the post by the beginning of December. And with that done, I will sit down with the dozens of cards meant for friends in the UK, and actually enjoy writing them, without the pressure of Royal Mail deadlines.
