BIOGRAPHY

Dubbed "the Muhammad Ali of the broadcast interview," the Larry King was an American journalist, broadcaster and the suspender-wearing host of "Larry King Live" (CNN, 1985-2011), one of the longest running and most viewed interview programs on television. Over the course of his 50 years in broadcasting, King interviewed more than 40,000 individuals, including every American president since Gerald Ford; a joint interview with PLO chief Yassir Arafat, King Hussein of Jordan, and Yitzhak Rabin of Israel; and a debate between Al Gore and Ross Perot that earned the highest ratings in the history of CNN. Detractors labeled King's style as "softball," but viewers, critics and broadcast organizations consistently lauded him throughout his long, successful run.
