Larry King dies at the age of 87

Born in Brooklyn, New York, on November 19, 1933, as Lawrence Harvey Zeiger. He was the king of talk shows and became the prominent voice of the Cable News Network (CNN) during his 25-year run with them.

In 1957, Zeiger got his first radio gig as a disc jockey working from 9 am to noon. He was making $50 a week. The general manager of the radio station wanted Zeiger to change his name because he felt that it was too difficult to remember. The name Larry King was then born.

King would go on to work in various platforms from television, radio, and online. King’s career spanned more than 60 years and he was known for his exclusive interviews with “Larry King Live” on CNN.
