About Larry King
Larry King is a living legend returning to his roots and true love: terrestrial radio. Before being known for his unique interview style on his CNN show ‘Larry King Live’, he started his career in radio in 1957 as a disc jockey. Larry eventually became the host of a local radio show and later went on to host his own national nightly talk show in 1978 for the Mutual Broadcasting System. Cultivating an audience through his interactive caller platform and interesting political opinions, Larry King received critical acclaim and became one of the most listened to radio show host personalities. Many consider Larry King as the pioneer and inspiration of many popular radio hosts today such as Ryan Seacrest, Dave Ramsey, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity and Howard Stern.
