Before he befriended presidents, sporting stars and iconic entertainers, Larry grew up on the streets of Brooklyn, where he was known to friends as 'Zeke the Greek the Mouthpiece' because he never stopped talking. Larry delves deeply into his extraordinary personal odyssey, beginning with the death of his father at age nine. He has lost jobs, had a three-pack-a-day smoking habit, been down to his last $2 when he won an $8000 trifecta at the racetrack, been married seven times to six different women, had a heart attack and quintuple bypass surgery, and has founded a heart foundation that has raised millions.
Larry King is the host of CNN's ‘Larry King Live’, the first worldwide phone-in television talk show and the network's highest-rated program. It has been twenty-three years since the show first aired on CNN and it is the longest running television show ever to screen in the same time slot continuously.
