Iconic TV and Radio Host Larry King Has Passed Away at Age 87. This morning, Ora Media shared the news that iconic tv and radio host Larry King has passed away. The entertainment icon was 87-years old. Though no cause of death was revealed, King had been admitted to the hospital in the last few weeks due to a COVID-19 diagnosis.

Ora Media shared to King’s official Twitter: “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. 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. Whether he was interviewing a U.S. president, foreign leader, celebrity, scandal-ridden personage, or an everyman, Larry liked to ask short, direct, and uncomplicated questions. He believed concise questions usually provided the best answers, and he was not wrong in that belief.

Our deepest condolences go out to the family, friends, and fans of Larry King. May his memory be a blessing. 🕯
