He’s become one of the most polarizing figures on cable television as of late and it seems Piers Morgan's time on CNN is coming to a close.

The English media personality explained to the New York times that his “Piers Morgan Live” program won’t continue much longer.

Morgan noted, “It’s been a painful period and lately we have taken a bath in the ratings. Look, I am a British guy debating American cultural issues, including guns, which has been very polarizing, and there is no doubt that there are many in the audience who are tired of me banging on about it.”

That being said, Piers hinted that he may take up a new gig at the network- “I think I can credibly do news and the ratings reflect that, but it is not really the show that I set out to do. There are all kinds of people who can do news here.”

“I’d like to do work — interviews with big celebrities and powerful people — that is better suited to what I do well and fit with what Jeff [Zucker] is trying to do with the network.”

CNN also released a statement regarding the news- “CNN confirms that ‘Piers Morgan Live’ is ending. The date of the final program is still to be determined.”
