Benson, famed sports columnist from RobinAndAllen.com,
recently guest-hosted for Larry King on the CNN program "Larry
King Live". Rumors now are circulating that Larry King is preparing
to retire and will ask Mitchell to become the permanent host.
When asked about the
Larry King hosting job, Mitchell downplayed the rumors.
"It was a cool thing
to do for one night. I had alot of fun, and I was honored to have
the chance to do it. But I seriously doubt if I'm going to become
the permanent host. Especially since I can't talk yet."
