Legendary broadcaster Larry King is still in a Los Angeles-area hospital for COVID-19; however, he has been removed from the ICU, NBC News reports.
King, who is 87, has been in the hospital for more than a week after contracting the coronavirus.
He has said he believes he contracted the virus from a healthcare worker who was in his home, according to NBC News. One of King’s sons also tested positive.
The Peabody Award-winning broadcaster was among America’s most prominent interviewers of celebrities, presidents and other newsmakers during a half-century career that included 25 years with a nightly show on CNN.
He has had medical issues in recent decades, including heart attacks and diagnoses of diabetes and lung cancer.
