CNN replacing Morgan with documentary series



NEW YORK — CNN is abandoning the talk show that anchored its prime-time schedule for three decades with Larry King and Piers Morgan in favor of several documentary-like series with personalities like Anthony Bourdain, Mike Rowe and John Walsh.

The network, which revealed the schedule change in a meeting with advertisers Thursday, also said it would air a nightly newscast at 10 p.m. with a rotating series of hosts.
