Longtime iconic CNN host, Larry King, passed away at 87.

King hosted “Larry King Live” on CNN for over 25 years, interviewing presidential candidates, celebrities, athletes, and everyday people. After conducting over 30,000 interviews in more than 6,000 shows, he retired in 2010.

Throughout his life, King battled a number of health problems and suffered many heart attacks. In 1987, he underwent quintuple bypass surgery, inspiring him to establish the Larry King Cardiac Foundation to provide assistance to those without insurance.

In an era filled with star newsmen, King was a giant – among the most prominent questioners on television and a host to presidents, movie stars and world class athletes. With an affable, easygoing demeanor that distinguished him from more intense TV interviewers, King perfected a casual approach to the Q&A format with his unique look. In his oversized glasses with very visible suspenders, he was always leaning forward and listening intently to his guests, rarely interrupting.

Jokes aside, King’s influence is evident today in the generation of podcasters is his pioneering conversational Q&A format. Among all the things that made Larry King great was that he had a sense of humor. Here is a sampling of Larry King moments with comedians. RIP Larry King
