The news was announced on Larry King's official Twitter account earlier this morning. King passed away at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center In Los Angeles.

Larry King has been hospitalized with COVID-19 but had been moved out of the ICU earlier this month. King has battled other health problems over the years, including prostate cancer and type-two diabetes. 

He was best-known for so many moments but some of the best were part of "Larry King Live"  which ran primetime on CNN from 1985 to 2010.

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.
