He hosted CNN’s “Larry King Live” for 25 years, interviewing everyone from world leaders and icons to criminals and conspiracy theorists during 6,000-plus episodes of the show from 1985 to 2010.

“Instead of goodbye, how about so long,” King told viewers when signing off from his final CNN show in 2010.

King went on to work on a variety of projects following his CNN tenure, including co-founding Ora TV in 2012.
