      I knew he wouldn’t survive COVID-19. ☹️

      Veteran talk show host Larry King died early Saturday in Los Angeles, according to Ora Media, a production company King formed. He was 87.

      In a statement posted on Twitter, the company said King died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. He was first reported to be hospitalized there in early January after contracting COVID-19, and moved out of the intensive care unit two days later. No cause of death was given.

      “Whether he was interviewing a U.S. president, foreign leader, celebrity, scandal-ridden personage, or an everyman, Larry liked to ask short, direct, and uncomplicated questions,” the statement says. “He believed concise questions usually provided the best answers, and he was not wrong in that belief.”

      Condolences to his family, friends and fans, of which I am one of the latter.

      My first memories of Larry King were from a small handheld radio I carried around at work.

      My job, likely in the late 1970s was as a security guard at Hanford’s ill fated WPPS sites.

      Larry’s voice kept me awake, informed and entertained while I made my rounds.

      I like to think that the man was about as non-biased as they get when it comes to his interviews.

      We all go at some point, letting go of those who go before me never gets easier. I will miss Mr. Larry King.
