Talk show host Larry King in hospital with COVID-19

LOS ANGELES (AP) — CNN says its former talk show host Larry King has been hospitalized with COVID-19 for more than a week.

The news channel said Saturday the 87-year-old King is undergoing treatment at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

Hospital protocols have kept King's family members from visiting him.

The Peabody Award-winning broadcaster was among America's most prominent interviewers of celebrities, presidents and other newsmakers during a half-century career that included 25 years with a nightly show on CNN.

He has had medical issues in recent decades, including heart attacks and diagnoses of diabetes and lung cancer.
