King, two nights in a row!”. He was a great friend of @TheMuppets and the world. He knew he was a figure of fun and never minded it, just went on with the job of being Larry King.— Michael McKean (@MJMcKean) January 23, 2021

Larry King was a Brooklyn boy who become a newsman who interviewed the newsmakers. May he Rest In Peace.— Dan Rather (@DanRather) January 23, 2021

Larry King was a giant of broadcasting and a master of the TV celebrity/statesman-woman interview.His name is synonymous with CNN and he was vital to the network’s ascent. Oh no!!! Thank you, Larry.— Kermit the Frog (@KermitTheFrog) January 23, 2021

The Larry King show was a glue that helped hold things together. Many shared notable video clips from his interviews. Farewell, my friend. “I wonder who’s on Larry King tonight?” didn’t have a Left or Right feel; the show was a smart, non-contentious family conversation we had each night. I was lucky enough to be interviewed by him and see his unique interview style first hand. While he was easily caricatured, I’ve never known anybody who made a bigger deal out of the slightest kindness afforded him. Sending love to his family & all of his many fans.— Reese Witherspoon (@ReeseW) January 23, 2021

Larry King was a radio and TV legend with an insatiable curiosity about people and a real sense of humor. King interviewed tens of thousands of notable and fascinating figures over the course of his career, and today, many of his past interview subjects, as well as friends and colleagues from his time hosting Larry King Live at CNN, tweeted their remembrances of and tributes to King. In the 1990s, Larry King Live even became the most important show in American politics. He conducted over 50,000 interviews that informed Americans in a clear and plain way. I tap his shoulder, like I’m some wannabe Fonzie, and say “Hey, Mr. was irreplaceable when he left CNN. May he Rest in Peace.https://t.co/XTgeMqjmcg— Christiane Amanpour (@camanpour) January 23, 2021

Larry was so so so so good to me. https://t.co/3oBiKvhXCH— Eric Andre (@ericandre) January 23, 2021

I enjoyed my 20+ interviews with Larry King over the years. He gave a direct line to the American people and worked hard to get the truth for them, with questions that were direct but fair. pic.twitter.com/1JsXeeZYEk— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) January 23, 2021

I was a huge fan of Larry King. I was always honored to go on his show just to hear his stories, so they started letting me interview him for the last segment each time.

Larry King was my @CNN colleague and good friend. He was a real mensch. pic.twitter.com/jhSxcfK5SD— Perez (@ThePerezHilton) January 23, 2021

Larry King was a hero of mine until we fell out after I replaced him at CNN & he said my show was ‘like watching your mother-in-law go over a cliff in your new Bentley.’ (He married 8 times so a mother-in-law expert) But he was a brilliant broadcaster & masterful TV interviewer. One of our true icons. #LarryKing worked hard and loved broadcasting, so much that he continued to do so after he left #CNN and up until his death. Here is some of the celebrity outpouring for the late broadcaster. A masterful interviewer and storyteller. I had the honor of being interviewed by him numerous times over the years, but this appearance in 2009 was the most meaningful. He was a deeply thoughtful, intelligent, kind man… pic.twitter.com/OTQrEar3c4— KevinSmith (@ThatKevinSmith) January 23, 2021

Sad news this morning. He had a great sense of humor and a genuine interest in people. I was grateful when he asked me to celebrate his 500th episode milestone with him as he was a nightly presence in my life growing up. My sincerest condolences to his family & friends. My Deepest Condolences to his loving family. Grew up with him on my television. Larry King Live changed CNN in the 80s blending entertainment with news & I loved being on the show.Larry was one of the best interviewers on TV. He was a singular voice and will be sorely missed.
