US TV host Larry King has died at the age of 87.
For many years, Larry hosted a nightly interview program on the Cable News Network (CNN) called Larry King Live. The program ran from 1985 to 2010.
Before that, he hosted a radio talk show on Mutual Radio called the Larry King Show. He has made some 40,000 interviews with politicians, athletes and entertainers.
King had a heart attack in 1987 and wrote two books about life with a heart disease. He founded the Larry King Cardiac Foundation in 1988 to help people who have no insurance cover the costs of treatment.
On January 2, 2021, it was revealed that King had been hospitalised 10 days earlier in a Los Angeles hospital after testing positive for COVID-19.
