Larry King 1933-2021


An interviewer with a very different style to most interviewers today, Larry King has died aged 87.

The BBC News Channel bungled their announcement of his passing this afternoon:

Characteristically, Piers Morgan has combined a tribute with something about himself, but I do like the quote from Larry King here:

Larry King was a hero of mine until we fell out after I replaced him at CNN & he said my show was ‘like watching your mother-in-law go over a cliff in your new Bentley.’ (He married 8 times so a mother-in-law expert). But he was a brilliant broadcaster & masterful TV interviewer.
