Broadcasting icon Larry King, 87, has been hospitalized after testing positive for COVID-19 according to reports.

Larry King, who hosted CNN's "Larry King Live" for 25 years, is reportedly undergoing treatment at Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Medical Center according to KATC and CNN.

According to, King has been hospitalized at "Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles for over a week".

King hasn't been active on Twitter since Thanksgiving on November 26, 2020.


King has battled a few serious health issues in recent years, including lung cancer in 2017 and a stroke in 2019.

Given his age and that fact King has Type 2 diabetes, this is a serious situation for the broadcasting legend. At this time it's not known how King is currently doing.

"The Brooklyn-born King began his career on radio in Miami in the late 1950s. Known for his blocky glasses, suspenders, and leaning over the table to converse with celebrities and politicians, there are few notables in public life who did not, at some point, cross his path."
