On the heels of David Frost's death, on Sunday Piers Morgan joined CNN's "Reliable Sources" program to reflect on the late journalist's life.
Prior to his appearance, Morgan took to twitter to share his thoughts on his fellow Brit:
RIP Sir David Frost > friend, hero, bon viveur, Arsenal fan and the greatest, ballsiest, most seductively charming TV interviewer ever.

"He was the fearless interviewer," Morgan said live on CNN Sunday. "I think for anyone in the world of journalism and television journalism, Sir David was the best."
Joining guest host Brian Stelter, Morgan shared the lessons Frost had taught him:
"He was somebody that said to me, 'there are two things you really have to focus on as a television interviewer as compared to a print interviewer. One is exercising the power of silence.' He said 'you really have to know when to shut up and let somebody, your guest, fill the gap,'" explained the "Piers Morgan Live" host. "He also said that you could never over assert for an interview ... You can never do enough preparation."
When Morgan sat down with Frost in April 2011, the latter revealed that George H.W. Bush is the American president he would have liked to have seen as his own, calling him "a man of his word."
Frost also paid Morgan a compliment, calling the CNN primetime host "a really good interviewer, good ad-libber. He's got all the talents."
