Larry King Hospitalised With Covid-19

The television host, 87, is currently in isolation while he receives care.

Larry King is receiving treatment in a Los Angeles hospital for COVID-19, according to entertainment journalist Roger Friedman’s Showbiz411 report on Saturday afternoon.

The report indicated that the longtime television host, 87, is in isolation and unable to receive visits from his wife of 23 years, Shawn King — to whom a divorce was initiated in 2019 — or other family members.

In 2019, King was hospitalized for chest pain and underwent blood flow surgery. In the past, he has survived a heart attack and a stroke. In 2020, King lost his son Andy, who died of a heart attack; and daughter Chaia, who died from lung cancer, just weeks apart.

King became a household name in the 1970s with the radio program The Larry King Show, which ran from 1978 to 1994. And then from 1985 to 2010, he hosted Larry King Live on CNN.
