Larry King’s work has been recognized with awards including two Peabodys and 10 Cable American Cinema Editors (ACE) Awards. He began as a local Florida journalist and radio interviewer in the 1950s and 1960s and became prominent as an all-night national radio broadcaster starting in 1978. From 1985 to 2010, he hosted the nightly interview television program Larry King Live on CNN. He was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 1989. He currently hosts Larry King Now on Hulu and RT America during the week, and on Thursdays he hosts Politicking with Larry King, a weekly political talk show which airs York City, NY, USA as Lawrence Harvey Zieger. He has been married to Shawn Ora Engermann since September 5, 1997. They have two children. Mr. King has written 4 books and was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. His parents were both Jewish immigrants and he changed his name from Ziegler to King when he was doing acting work.
Larry claims to “never prepare for an interview”. The reasoning is that the average audience member knows little or nothing about a given show guest, so he prefers to begin as they would begin, and learn about the guest during the course of the show. He’s not concerned about people liking him – he just wants to have a good interview”.
