Broadcasting famous figure Larry King has died at the age of 87.

Iran PressAmerica: With his trademark suspenders and deep baritone voice Larry King spoke with presidents, world leaders, celebrities, authors, scientists, comedians, athletes — everyone. The Peabody Award-winning broadcaster died Saturday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. He was 87.

The death of the famed interviewer was announced on Twitter by his production studio, Ora Media, NPR reported.

"I'm always engrossed in the guest," King told Jesse Thorne on The Turnaround podcast in 2017. "I'm always listening to the answer. I'm always learning, so I guess I'm better every day at learning."

Who was Larry King

The Brooklyn-born King actually was an indifferent student, but said he always had an innate curiosity.

"When we would go to Dodger games, all my friends wanted autographs at the end," he said. "I never asked for an autograph, but I would walk with the players, as they're going to their cars asking questions: Why did you bunt? Why did they do this in the third inning? My curiosity is still insatiable."

King began his career as a DJ and sportscaster in Miami — and it's where he got his name, as well. When a station manager told him his given surname, Zeiger, was "too ethnic," he chose King from a liquor ad in a newspaper.

By the late 1970s, King had an overnight talk show on the Mutual Broadcasting System. Then, in 1985, Ted Turner hired him for his new network, CNN. Media commentator and author Bill Carter, a CNN contributor, says the timing was perfect.

"Picking up somebody like Larry King made a lot of sense," Carter said. "Because he had established himself kind of as a guy who would get big guests, they could have big names and promote it and it became sort of the linchpin of their prime time lineup."

King stayed there for 25 years. Some critics complained that he was too chummy with celebrities and lobbed softball questions at his guests.

King famously didn't do a lot of preparation before his interviews.

"The less I know, the better," he said. "Now that sounds strange to people. Like, if you wrote a book, I wouldn't read the book before I interviewed you, because I would then know too much about the book and I'm in the same boat as the audience. They haven't read the book."

King was a survivor. He was married eight times and had quintuple bypass surgery following a massive heart attack. And King took his talk show to streaming video — on Ora TV, Hulu, and most controversially, RT America, the Russian network — and kept on working.
