American television and radio host Larry King was born in 1933 in Brooklyn, New York. Larry graduated from high school and immediately went to work to help support his mother; his father had passed unexpectedly when King was a teenager. But he always harbored an interest in journalism and radio broadcasting, and so when a friend suggested that King try the Miami market, which was growing rapidly and in need of broadcasters, Larry decided to move.
Larry King made his on-air broadcast for the radio station WMBM in Miami in 1957, working as a disc jockey for the morning shift. Within a short amount of time, he’d moved to sports casting and the occasional newscast, launching his career and making him a local celebrity. By 1960, he had one of the most popular shows in the Miami market, and in 1978, his show went national, making Larry King one of the most recognized and respected radio hosts in the country.
In 1985, Larry King was offered his own television program on the CNN network. His direct, non-confrontational interview approach made him a favorite interviewer for the nation’s celebrities, and since the start of his show King has interviewed more than thirty thousand individuals. King remained with the show until 2010, his twenty-fifth year, but has since remained with the CNN network for occasional specials and programs. For his contributions to broadcasting, King has been recognized with multiple Peabody Award and ten CableACE Awards.
Since leaving CNN, Larry King has founded his own production company and signed a deal with the Hulu network to carry his new web-based talk show, Larry King Now. King has also started the Larry King Cardiac Foundation, which seeks to raise awareness of heart health. King himself suffered a major heart attack in the late 1980’s, and has written multiple books about heart disease, including: Taking On Heart Disease: Famous Personalities Recall How They Triumphed over the Nation’s #1 Killer and How you Can, Too (2004.)
