RIP, Larry King

Larry King, The Living Museum of ’80s Power Ties and Suspenders, has gone to the great Mic in the Sky. It was probably from Covid as he was reportedly recently hospitalized with it.

Love him or hate him, if you were around during the ’80s, ’90s, early 21st century you knew him. He changed celebrity interviewing forever, and if you had to think of the golden age of CNN (Pre-Zucker as I think of it), Larry King was front and center.

    Olbermann tweeted a tribute, mentioning that King had thousands of friends.
    He was kind enough to give a boost to a kid doing an animated Disney show by voicing himself, sort of, in two episodes of Gravity Falls.
    He was tough enough to piss off Seinfeld. (he reportedly asked an aide for a bio of Jerry so he could correct inaccuracies.)

      Larry didn’t believe in preparing for interviews. He pissed off Seinfeld by speculating that the show was canceled due to declining ratings. He didn’t know NBC had offered Seinfeld $5 million an episode. Seinfeld had a right to be pissed.

      Here are the fireworks:
