Legendary CNN talk show host Larry King has died in Los Angeles, California at the age of 87. He retired after hosting CNN’s top rated Larry King Live talk show for 25 years.
His son, Chance, confirmed King’s death Saturday morning, but did not give the cause of his father’s death. He was hospitalised earlier this month with COVID.
King was the longtime CNN host who became an icon through his interviews with countless newsmakers and his sartorial sensibilities. He did more than 50,000 interviews during his long career.
“Larry King Live” interviewed presidential candidates, celebrities, athletes, movie stars and everyday people.
He retired in 2010 after taping more than 6,000 episodes of the show.
