The famous American TV host Larry King on Saturday, January 2, was sent to the hospital. He has been diagnosed with COVID-19. It was reported by the TV channel ABC News, citing a source close to the family of the journalist.
As explained by the channel’s interlocutor, King has had many health problems in the past few years, “and he’s struggling with that too, he’s a champion.”
The 87-year-old anchor is hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
In 2017, the TV host talked about his battle with lung cancer. He suffered a serious heart attack in 1987, and the tumor was discovered during his annual checkup. In April 2019, he suffered a heart attack and had an angioplasty. He also suffered a stroke last year.
In 2020, King’s two children died less than a month apart. Son Andy died of a heart attack in July, and daughter Chaya died of lung cancer in August.
From 1985 to 2010, King hosted his own show Larry King Live on CNN. He later created Larry King Now, which airs on Hulu and RT America. King has won two Peabody Awards, an Emmy, and has his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame
