Legendary journalist and TV host Barbara Walters may be replaced by a British talent show judge. Piers Morgan, who judges "Britain's Got Talent" with Simon Cowell, is said to be the "next Barbara Walters."

Morgan, 45, confirmed that he is currently finalizing a deal with NBC to host a show that features one-on-one interview with celebrities.

He told The Sun, "Barbara has just semi-retired, and I think there is an opportunity there for me. I do one-on-ones like Barbara Walters. I am not entertainment talk show, late night kind of guy. It is more biographical interviews."

"I have the number one talk show in England. Certainly, NBC thinks it is the time to try to do something."

NBC's Paul Telegdy added, "We like Piers because he has a very sort of direct manner. He doesn't sugarcoat anything."

Morgan is a former tabloid editor and current "America's Got Talent" judge.
