LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Legendary broadcaster Larry King, who was put into an intensive care unit in a Los Angeles hospital with COVID-19, has been removed from the ICU, according to a report today.
A source close to King's family said he continues to be treated at the hospital, NBC4 reported early Monday on Twitter.
King was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center more than a week ago, according to media reports.
The 87-year-old became a household name as the host of CNN's “Larry King Live'' for decades after a successful run as host of radio's “The Larry King Show'' in the 1970s.
The Brooklyn native stepped down from his CNN show in 2012, but has continued to work since then, hosting “Larry King Now'' from 2012-20 on Hulu and RT America. He also hosts the weekly “Politicking with Larry King'' on those channels.
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 also has Type 2 diabetes.
