Veteran broadcaster, Larry King, struck with Covid-19, hospitalised

VETERAN broadcaster, Larry King, 87, has reportedly tested positive for the coronavirus disease and is being treated at a hospital in Los Angeles.

King has reportedly been confined to Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre for over a week.

He took the broadcasting world by the storm in his late twenties and his career has spanned over 60 years.

The talk show host eventually rose to fame in the 1970s with his radio programme The Larry King Show, on the commercial network Mutual Broadcasting System.

He was then the host of Larry King Live on CNN, between 1985 and 2010, holding interviews with a host of guests, including politicians, athletes, entertainment figures, and conspiracy theorists.

The renowned broadcaster has won numerous awards including Peabody Awards and an Emmy.

The octogenarian has faced several health problems in recent years, including heart attacks.

Representatives for King have not publicly commented on his hospital treatment, and details of his current condition are unclear.

“Larry has fought so many health issues in the last few years and he is fighting this one hard too, he’s a champ,” a source told CNN.

King’s admission to hospital was first reported on 1 January by entertainment outlet Showbiz 411, which noted that he was being treated in isolation and was unable to receive family visits.
