Larry King: CNN's 'Got Problems,' But I 'Miss It' Sometimes

Larry King opened up about his split from CNN in 2012 and offered some advice to the network as they struggle to rebuild in 2014.

King said in an interview on HuffPost Live Wednesday that he had "mixed feelings" about leaving CNN, but eventually he knew it was "time to hang it up."

"I miss it when there's big stories but on a day-to-day basis I don't," King said. "It was a great marriage."

King also weighed in on CNN's recent plunge in the cable TV rankings. The network saw it's third-worst ratings month in history in January following chief Jeff Zucker's plan to focus more on shows and documentaries and less on newscasts.

"CNN's got problems," King said of the network's restructuring. "I don't know what they're going to do."

Luckily, King had some advice for CNN and Zucker on how they can achieve the new vision for the network.

"Cartoons," he said. "Put 'Spongebob' on CNN-- 24 hours-- until a big story breaks. Then we break into 'Spongebob,' and go to the hurricane, and then back to 'Spongebob.'"
