Larry King dies at 87
TV host and one of the best interviewers in the United States, Larry King passed away at 87. The cause of death has not been disclosed at this time.
“With profound sadness, Ora Media announces the death of our co-founder, host and friend Larry King, who passed away this morning at age 87 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles,” the message wrote.
“For 63 years and across the platforms of radio, television and digital media, Larry’s many thousands of interviews, awards, and global acclaim stand as a testament to his unique and lasting talent as a broadcaster.
“Additionally, while it was his name appearing in the shows’ titles, Larry always viewed his interview subjects as the true stars of his programs, and himself as merely an unbiased conduit between the guest and audience.”
In the last years of his life, King overcame many terrible diseases, including a stroke, a heart attack, prostate and lung cancer. King was diagnosed with Covid-19 last December.
