Larry King, the Brooklyn-bred man who started on radio in 1957 became cable TV’s most well-known talk-show host, died Saturday January 23, 2021. He was 87.

King had been hospitalized with COVID-19. He passed away Saturday morning at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, according to Ora Media, a production company King co-founded.

Near the end of 2020, King was hospitalized in Cedars-Sinai Medical Center with COVID-19. He was moved to the ICU on New Year’s Eve and was receiving oxygen but moved out of the ICU in early January and was breathing on his own, said David Theall, a spokesman for Ora Media, said at the time.

He was probably the last television host, radio host, spokesman who actually talked to people like Malcolm X and Golda Meir, Former Prime Minister of Israel.

Larry King was also mourning the death of two of his children, Andy and Chaia King, who died within weeks of each other.

The veteran television host, 86 at the time, shared the news of both deaths simultaneously in an announcement Saturday night. Andy, 65, died “unexpectedly of a heart attack on July 28” and Chaia, 51, “passed on August 20, only a short time after having been diagnosed with lung cancer.”

“It is with sadness and a father’s broken heart that I confirm the recent loss of two of my children, Andy King, and Chaia King,” he wrote. “Both of them were good and kind souls and they will be greatly missed.”

Andy and Chaia were two of King’s five children, both with former Playboy bunny Alene Akins, who died in 2017. King adopted Akins’ son Andy after the couple married in 1961 (the TV host has been married eight times to seven women). The two later split and remarried, after which they welcomed Chaia.

She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.
