Award-winning TV host Larry King, who has battled multiple health issues over the years and was hospitalized with coronavirus on Jan. 2, has passed away at the age of 87.

His production company Ora Media announced the news on Jan. 23, tweeting, “With profound sadness, Ora Media announces the death of our co-founder, host, and friend Larry King, who passed away this morning at age 87 at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles.”

A cause of death was not revealed. However, the host of Larry King Live was hospitalized due to complications from coronavirus on Jan. 2 in Los Angeles. He had a history of health issues including type 2 diabetes, prostate and lung cancer and a past heart attack. Due to restrictions to stop the spread of the virus, his children Cannon, Larry Jr. and Chance, as well as his estranged wife Shawn King, who he filed for divorce from in 2019, were unable to visit him in the hospital. Currently, Los Angeles is the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic.

Larry’s death comes just months after he lost two of his children last summer. His son Andy was 65 when he died unexpectedly of a heart attack on July 28, and his daughter Chaia was 65 when she died of complications from lung cancer on Aug. 20, shortly after being diagnosed. Andy and Chaia are the children of Larry and his late ex-wife, former Playboy bunny Alene Atkins.
