This morning Ora Media announced that Legendary Host and CNN Reporter, Larry King has passed away at the age of 87,
This comes Just 3 weeks after King was hospitalized at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles with COVID 19.
King was placed on a ventilator for about a week and then removed from the ICU said to be breathing on his own where he had the opportunity to have a video phone call with his three sons Larry Jr., Cannon, and Chance who were unable to visit him during this event due to COVID protocol.
Heres what Ora Media had to say:
King, who is no stranger to health issues, had Type 2 diabetes andbhas confronted a series of other medical issues over the years, including several heart attacks and quintuple bypass surgery in 1987. In 2017, King revealed he had been diagnosed with lung cancer and successfully underwent surgery to treat it. He also underwent a procedure in 2019 to address angina.
He has proven to be not only an ICON in the space of Entertainment and Media, but also a true fighter among us.
We at CritiX Media would like to share our condolences with the friends and family of such a legendary voice in journalism. May you rest in Power Mr. King.
