US TV host Larry King has died at the age of 87.

For many years, Larry hosted a nightly interview program on the Cable News Network (CNN) called Larry King Live. The program ran from 1985 to 2010.

King had a heart attack in 1987 and wrote two books about life with a heart disease. He founded the Larry King Cardiac Foundation in 1988 to help people who have no insurance cover the costs of treatment.
