(Newser) – The mystery of who will replace Larry King is over—probably: CNN is about to sign Piers Morgan. The former newspaper editor and British talk show host, best known as a judge on Britain’s Got Talent and its American counterpart, is looking to commit to a four-year contract that would put him in King's seat this fall, the Telegraph reports. The deal is reportedly for more than $8 million.
