Broadcasting legend Larry King dies at the age of 87

One of the biggest faces in broadcasting has died.

Ora Media announced that Larry King passed away this morning at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. King was recently hospitalized with COVID-19 and was undergoing treatment, though it was not confirmed whether that was the cause of his death.

For 63 years, King worked across the platforms of radio, television and digital media, compiling thousands of interviews and winning numerous awards in the process.

King will most notably be remembered for his 25-year run on CNN's "Larry King Live," as well as his Ora Media programs like "Larry King Now" and "Politicking with Larry King."

Stars and broadcaster around the world shared their respect and condolences to King. Piers Morgan came under fire for airing out some "dirty laundry" while honouring King.

Ryan Seacrest called King a "friend and mentor," noting that he was "an American treasure."

Larry King was 87-years-old.
