Multiple news outlets, including CNN, are reporting that legendary newsman and expert interviewer Larry King has died at the age of 87. His death was announced by his son Chance early Saturday January 23, 2021, and a statement confirming the information has since been posted to King’s verified Facebook account.

The statement reads: “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. 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.”

King was a fixture in the world of American journalism for nearly half a century, and is perhaps most famous for his long-running interview show Larry King LiveLarry King Live began in 1985 and ran for over 25 years on CNN. A staple in a fading genre of long-form interview series, the show featured newsmakers from every walk of life including actors, artists, celebrities, athletes, activists, business leaders, and local heroes. CNN recorded and broadcast an astonishing 6,120 episodes of the series, before the aging interviewer officially called it quits in 2010.

Although the statement does not provide an official cause of death, King had been battling COVID-19 in recent weeks, an infection for which he was hospitalized back in December (via CNN).
