Piers Morgan, the CNN primetime host whose efforts to provide the network with a new type of celebrity-interview show met with ratings headwinds, has officially left the cable news channel after declining a new two-year deal that would have made him the host of a sporadic interview series.
"I was offered a new 2-year deal by CNN boss Jeff Zucker to host 40 big interview 'specials,'" Morgan said via Twitter. "But after considerable thought, I decided not to accept it - and to try pastures new."
