Legendary television presenter, Larry King, has tragically lost two of his children within a matter of weeks.
King is a true veteran of journalism – both on radio and television.
From 1978 until 1994, King hosted The Larry King Show, a radio show where King would interview someone and then take calls from the public.
Later, he hosted Larry King Live from 1985 until 2010 and the nightly TV show was CNN’s most watched and longest-running program, with over one million viewers nightly.
In the past few weeks, King has had some awful news. Two of his five children died within just days of one another.
His son, Andy, died suddenly a couple of weeks ago, aged just 65, and then his daughter Chaia died shortly afterwards.
An insider revealed the awful news:
Larry and his three remaining children are distraught, and Larry’s still recovering from his own health issues from last year.
Larry still has three surviving children, and he’s been married eight times.
Our thoughts go out to Andy and Chaia’s family and friends at this hard time.
Rest in peace.
