About Lawrence Harvey Zeiger

One of the stalwarts of cable news -- not only in the United States but around the globe -- CNN mainstay Larry King reshaped the landscape of broadcast journalism when his talk show Larry King Live debuted in June 1985; that program's groundbreaking admixture of cutting-edge political discussion, incisive celebrity-directed Q & A, and viewer phone-in rocked the world and drew an audience of tens of millions. By 2007 -- King's 22nd year on cable and his 50th year in broadcasting -- the CNN website revealed that King had chalked up 40,000 interviews, including one with every United States president since Gerald Ford. Uncoincidentally, that was the same year King achieved an honor claimed by very few: a city block -- the street surrounding the CNN building -- was christened "Larry King Square" in his honor.

King ended his run with Larry King Live on 16 December 2010. He published a memoir, My Remarkable Journey, in 2009.

Despite being retired from Larry King Live, King continues to use Twitter in his daily life. King’s tweets consist of updates on his activities, messages to his celebrity friends, promotion of his charities, and updates on current news stories.
