Broadcasting legend Larry King has died at the age of 87-years old.

The Associated Press (AP) reports Ora Media, the studio and network he co-founded, tweeted that King had died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

No cause of death was given, but CNN had earlier reported that King was hospitalized with COVID-19.

A longtime nationally syndicated radio host, from 1985 through 2010 King was a nightly fixture on CNN, where he won many honors, including two Peabody awards.

King who conducted an estimated 50,000 on-air interviews, boasted of never over-preparing for an interview.

His nonconfrontational style relaxed his guests and made him readily relatable to his audience.

In 1995 he presided over a Middle East peace summit with PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat, King Hussein of Jordan and Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin. He welcomed everyone from the Dalai Lama to Elizabeth Taylor, from Mikhail Gorbachev to Barack Obama, Bill Gates to Lady Gaga.
