American Television and Radio host, Larry King has died, his production Company Ora Media announced in a statement Saturday morning.

No cause of death was given but the demise of the journalism royalty comes weeks after he was admitted to hospital having tested positive for COVID-19.

“With profound sadness, Ora Media announces the death of our co-founder, host, and friend Larry King, who passed away this morning at age 87 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles,” King’s official Twitter announced Saturday morning.

King began his career in the late 1950s as a DJ and newspaper journalist before expanding his reach to celebrity interviews and sports commentary. He tasted fame in the 1970s with his nationwide Larry King Show which he hosted on the network Mutual Broadcasting System.

The baritone-voiced superstar would be greatly remembered for his popular prime-time show “Larry King Live” which aired on CNN from 1985 through 2010.
