News anchor Piers Morgan’s tenure with CNN officially ended on Tuesday this week, and according to a tweet sent by the British journalist, an exchange with radio host Alex Jones was among the highlights of his career there.

“If I’m to be remembered for anything [at] CNN, I’d like it to be this” Morgan told his 4.23 million Twitter followers on Tuesday along with a link to a YouTube clip of his infamous gun debate with Jones in the wake of the December 2012 school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.

Both the Brit and Jones made headlines in their own right last year when a discussion on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Today” concerning firearm laws in the United States turned stormy.

Strangely enough, however, some media analysts have previously speculated that Morgan’s stringent anti-gun stance is part of the reason he was relieved from his CNN job in the first place.
