Larry King, Legendary TV Host Dies At 87.

Larry King, the award-winning TV & radio host, died Saturday morning at the age of 87 after being hospitalized with COVID-19.

In an interview with Sona Oganesyan in 2019, the late Larry King spoke about his friendship with the late Kirk Kerkorian, who he called a “Great Armenian,” the Armenian Genocide & about how Azerbaijanis threatened to behead him after his visit to Armenia.

“The late Kirk Kerkorian was a great friend of mine, I used to have lunch with him every two weeks at The Wilshire, every two weeks, corner table. He was a wonderful generous, lowest ego i ever knew, he had no ego and didn’t do interviews no biography and he was a great Armenian for the Armenian cause so he really embedded me of what the Turks did,” said King in his interview with Sona Oganesyan on “HyeBrand.”

“I got in trouble because I was in Azerbaijan, I made a speech there, the people were very nice to me and flew me in and then I met the President of Armenia who invited me to come to Armenia all expenses paid and I accepted and they sent out a press release that I’m gonna visit Armenia and I get death threats from Azerbaijan. I knew then that it was a little serious, these people take things very seriously. One guy said ‘we’re going to behead you.” added King.
