Larry King, the suspenders-sporting everyman whose broadcast interviews with world leaders, movie stars and ordinary Joes helped define American conversation for a half-century, died at 87 on Saturday.

King died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, his production company, Ora Media, tweeted.

No cause of death was given, but a spokesperson said that King had COVID-19, had received supplemental oxygen, and had been moved out of intensive care. His son Chance Armstrong also confirmed King’s death, CNN reported.
