Piers Morgan: “I didn’t join [CNN @ 9pm] to come in second or third or fourth”
Taking over CNN’s 9pm hour from Larry King who’s been stuck in third, and sometimes fourth place among cable news networks for quite some time would seem to be a big hole to climb out of, but Piers Morgan is undeterred.
“I didn’t join the network to come in second or third or fourth,” Morgan said during a conference call with reporters on Wednesday (Sept. 8). “I want to be first.”
You’ve got to admire his spirit, but it will be quite a climb.
His new show begins in January.
