Larry King has died, aged 87, on Saturday morning.
His son, Chance, confirmed King’s death.
King battled a number of health problems over the years, suffering several heart attacks.
He had been hospitalised with Covid-19 in late December at Cedars-Sinai.
The longtime CNN host who became an icon through his interviews with countless newsmakers, hosted “Larry King Live” for over 25 years.
King was popularly known for interviewing presidential candidates, celebrities, athletes, movie stars and everyday people.
He, however, retired in 2010 after taping more than 6,000 episodes of the show.
