Since 1957, Larry King has been a part of the entertainment business, first doing local radio and television interviews in Florida before going national on radio in 1978. In 1985, he came to CNN, and he's been a fixture in cable news ever since. So it was with mixed emotions that he sat down with the women of 'The View' to discuss his retirement.

Whoopi Goldberg addressed the question that's perhaps foremost on everyone's mind: "What's going to happen that first day you wake up and you don't have to go in?" she asked. "Are you going to try to wear those suspenders anyway?" We suspect King has suspenders for his pajamas, too, so he's got that base covered.

King kept it classy when talking about the bittersweet feeling of saying goodbye to a half-century in entertainment. "It's mixed emotions," he explained. "For example, you have a Supreme Court judge on, you love that. But then you have to do a show that you don't love so much."
