Jan 23 2021 SAG-AFTRA Statement on the Passing of Larry King Read More

SAG-AFTRA mourns the loss of television host and personality Larry King, who passed away today at the age of 87. He was a member of the union for more than half a century, having joined AFTRA in 1968.

SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris said:

'From heads of state to the most popular entertainers of the day, Larry King interviewed them all. His warm, avuncular manner drew guests, listeners and viewers alike. Over a career of more than six decades, he was equally comfortable on radio, television and digital media, and he never stopped connecting with audiences. His distinctive voice will be sorely missed. Our condolences go out to his family and friends.'
