Larry King, talk show host legend, in hospital with COVID-19”

Legendary television host Larry King has been hospitalized for COVID-19, according to multiple reports.

"Larry has fought so many health issues in the last few years and he is fighting this one hard too, he's a champ", an unnamed source told the USA broadcaster ABC News. In 2019, King underwent a procedure to treat angina.

King has weathered numerous health problems, including a major heart attack in 1987, the removal of a cancerous tumor in 2017, an angioplasty in 2019, and a stroke in March 2019. He is also a holder of the Emmy and Peabody awards.

King is also father to Larry King, Jr. with former wife Annette Kaye. From 1985 to 2010, King was the host of "Larry King Live" on CNN.

King rose to fame in the 1970s with his radio program, "The Larry King Show".

In 1988 he founded the Larry King Cardiac Foundation, a charity which helps to fund heart treatment for those with limited financial means or no medical insurance.
