    Given the difficulty of eliminating all of the pathogens deposited on your mike over the years, we are grateful, Larry, that you have agreed to take it with you.

    Never has a producer so drawn out the single-syllable word, "Jjjjjjjeeeeeerrrrrrkkkkkkkkkk."

    …and a severance bonus of $63 million plus a stipend of $8.5 million dollars for the rest of your life.

    Larry King gets the Mike but is disappointed that he won't be able to use it to make "The King's Speech"!

    December 17, 2010 at 6:48 pm |
  24. Shawn Hendricks - Fairplay, MD

    There's more here…but what it boils down to is, "Don't let the door hit you," etc.

    By this age most people are pushing up daisies. Me? I'm rockin the red.

    "To the last, I grapple with thee…"

  28. Shawn Hendricks - Fairplay, MD

    No, really! She even gave him his microphone and took him out to the country where he can run and play in the sunshine. Too bad you couldn't be here to say goodbye.
    Oh, and the farmer whose place we sent him to says he's very, very happy.

    Larry King Live executive producer Wendy Walker:

    I present to you, a real treasure. They certainly don't make them like they use to ... and that goes for the microphone too!!

    We had planned on giving you a gold microphone, but with the rising price of gold, we couldn't justify the cost.

    December 17, 2010 at 6:30 pm |
  32. Patty-CA

    25 years of diligent service and all CNN can come up with is a Microphone?!..I guess those rumors about a Rolex was just a rumor!

    December 17, 2010 at 6:27 pm |
  33. Lynda Nelson, BC Canada

    Bracing for the imminent loss of revenue due to the end of Larry King Live, CNN curbs the budget by giving Larry a piece of his set rather than buying him a gift!

    December 17, 2010 at 6:27 pm |
  34. Kris White

    OK, let's see...these directions say turn the switch in the back of the microphone to the "on" position...

    Introducing the roving red manace. He will interview you on the beaches, on the seas, and in the air. All will succumb.

    Wendy Walker: Ironically, I now hold the "working" microphone.

    The rumble between the Jets and Sharks will be under the bridge after dark. If they say chains, I say chains. If they say bricks, I say bricks.

    In keeping with the three R's of the environment – reduce, reuse and recycle – CNN opted to gift Larry King the microphone from his set rather than buy him something new.

    December 17, 2010 at 6:18 pm |
  43. Sam Hasselbring

    Oh Larry, You didn't think you would get to keep the new mic? CNN is a news station decated to staying dated and that includes shipping off retired reporters with our old mics.

    From: Houston, Texas

    Larry King hangs up his trademark braces and embraces the Mike that made him the 'undisputed' King of prime time chat!

    Larry: "Boy do I look good in this red bomber jacket."

    If I hit Pierce Morgan with this microphone, does it mean America's Got Talent?

  49. Londa, New York

    After 25 years, and all I get is an old outdated mike?

    December 17, 2010 at 6:06 pm |
  50. john stevens TORONTO

    Why? Because I'm Larry King and I can do whatever the hell I want! miss him already.
