Comedian Fred Armisen dressed as King to "grill" the host, and was followed by news anchors Barbara Walters, Katie Couric, Brian Williams and Diane Sawyer, who presented King with goodbye suspenders.

Former President Bill Clinton -- who has been a guest on Larry King Live 28 times -- appeared live from Little Rock, Ark. to wish King a fond farewell.

King noted that although he was leaving his nightly CNN show, he would continue to do specials for CNN and other projects on radio and television.

"You're not going to see me go away," said a teary-eyed King during his final address. "Instead of goodbye, how about so long."

Mel Gibson's Ex Says She Feared for Her Life

Photo Courtesy - Getty Images (LOS ANGELES) -- Oksana Grigorieva told CNN's Larry King in an interview that aired Wednesday evening that she recorded her ex-boyfriend, Mel Gibson, berating her -- not to extort the actor, but because she feared for her life.

"I started taping it around 11 o'clock because I thought, 'I'm actually not going to live through the night," she said on Larry King Live. "I wanted my mother to be able to prove that if I'm dead that this is who did it."

She told King that Gibson called her 30 to 40 times in one night, and that she recorded about eight of those calls.

The interview originally was to be broadcast next Monday which, reported, "not-so-coincidentally happens to be the same day Grigorieva was supposed to be grilled on the stand in her custody case with Mel Gibson."

Grigorieva, 40, and Gibson have a daughter, Lucia, born a little more than a year ago.

Grigorieva has alleged, according to, that last January, at his mansion in Malibu, Gibson "punched out two of her front teeth, leaving her bloodied, bruised and with a concussion."

"I forgave him in a couple of weeks' time after the first severe beating that he struck me twice with his fist," Grigorieva told Larry King. "And then he was choking me and whilst I was holding Lucia and not protecting myself."

Girgorieva told King throughout the interview that Gibson did not drink around her -- "no liquor, not once."

Grigorieva said last July that Gibson was "trivializing domestic violence." In a video interview with, she said, "It is unfair that by standing up to somebody -- and speaking out -- I am being victimized all over again."

Grigorieva now is taking another opportunity to speak out. The interview on Larry King Live is her first major television interview about her domestic violence accusations against Gibson.
