Longtime television host Larry King passed away at age 87, representatives said Saturday.

King died on Saturday morning at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California, Ora Media announced.

King co-founded the media.

The cause of death was not announced.

King was hospitalized with COVID-19 late last month. He had appeared to be recovering; he was moved out of intensive care during the first week of January.

COVID-19 is the disease caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus. It can be particularly harmful to the elderly and those with serious underlying health conditions.

King, who hosted a show on CNN for decades, leaves behind three children and other relatives.

Funeral arrangements and a memorial service will be announced later, Ora Media said, “in coordination with  the King family, who ask for their privacy at this time.”
