    He was a great journalist, and a grateful man.
    He had a good, long run.
    RIP, sir.

    R.I.P. Mr. King, I didn't get to see much of his shows (mostly through YT) but he was a broadcast personality and made a huge mark in the world of news and entertainment.

    probably best to give it some time, be sensitive to people that might not share the same opinion.

    I liked his late night radio show for the quality of the guests/conversation, and I don't remember it bothering me, if you understand me.

    I'll say it was one of those things about which we now say "don't know what you've got till it's gone".

    My nephew was once one of his producers, he was once able to get my mom to come to the taping at the Burt Reynolds Ranch, when Larry interviewed Burt back in the day, thrill of her lifetime...RIP Larry, Burt and Mom..

    Old school.

    Yes, he did kiss up a bit but folks don't understand that unless you run some hyper divisive operation you're better off getting everyone and anyone in your chair. You let the audience make up their mind, that's not your job to make their opinion for them. And, in fact, Larry came up in an era where you HAD to give your different guests equal time/share of their views. Not like the BS we have today.

    Anyways, his last show was great.

    RIP.

    Maybe being married 7 times wore him out. RIP

    i didn't listen to or watch him often, but i remember a couple of guests that he had on he was very kind to. people who everyone else would have ripped to pieces. was he being too kind? i don't think so - by treating these people with respect, he actually got some worthwhile commentary from them.

    what little i ever saw of him, he seemed a gracious man.

    Signing off Larry.
    Pretty sure your LA Dodgers are going to miss your cheering them on from the Front Row.

    Rest In Peace.
