Larry King, hospitalized with COVID, moved out of ICU
Former Larry King Live host no longer receiving oxygen, says spokesperson
Veteran talk show host Larry King, suffering from COVID-19, has been moved out of the intensive care unit at a Los Angeles hospital and is breathing on his own, a spokesperson said on Monday.
King was moved to the ICU on New Year's Eve and was receiving oxygen but is now breathing on his own, said David Theall, a spokesperson for Ora Media, a production company formed by King.
The 87-year-old broadcasting legend shared a video phone call with his three sons, Theall said.
King, who spent many years as an overnight radio DJ, is best known as host of the Larry King Live interview show that ran in prime time on CNN from 1985 to 2010.
