Katie Couric, Barbara Walters, Diane Sawyer and Brian Williams Honor Larry King

As we reported last night, all three broadcast evening news anchors, along with Barbara Walters, dropped in to CNN’s New York studios to pay their respects to Larry King during his final program.

We spoke to NBC’s Brian Williams earlier in the evening at the NBC holiday press party before he made the trek 10 blocks north to Time Warner Center to appear on the show.

ABC’s Diane Sawyer presented King with a gift: a custom set of suspenders–with all of their names stitched into it. “We spent all night stitching our names” Williams quipped.

CBS’ Katie Couric, who is good friends with King’s senior executive producer Wendy Walker, read King a poem that she wrote. Video of her tribute is after the jump.
