Radio and television journalist Larry King has a net worth of $150 million. King was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, the son of Jewish immigrants. King would have to venture to Miami, Florida to jump start his career in radio, where he first hit the airwaves in 1957 on WAHR. Three years later, King graduated to television where he hosted Miami Undercover on local channel 10 and rose to local celebrity status. King's popularity could not save him from a brush with the law, and he spent a number of years in Louisiana working on comeback until he was welcomed back and hired on Mutual Radio Network (now Mutual Broadcast System) where he quickly went national with The Larry King Show, which gained a devoted audience and over five hundred affiliates. Upon the shows demise in 1984, King bounced back with Larry King Live, which currently ranks as the longest running and most watched television program on CNN, pulling in well over one million viewers on a nightly basis. Among King's awards are ten Cable ACE Awards, two Peabody Awards and a Golden Mike Award. King has had numerous celebrity figures substitute for him, among them comedian Kathy Griffin, journalist/news anchor Dan Rather and Kermit the Frog. King has made numerous self-appearances in film and television including Ghostbusters, Shrek 2 and 30 Rock. King's personal life has received as much attention as his popular show, with eight marriages and now eight divorces under his belt.
Larry King (born November 19, 1933) is an American television and radio host whose work has been recognized with awards including two Peabodys and ten Cable ACE Awards. He began as a local Florida journalist and radio interviewer in the 1950s and 1960s and became prominent as an all-night national radio broadcaster starting in 1978. From 1985-2010, he hosted the nightly interview TV program Larry King Live on CNN.
King was born Lawrence Harvey Zeiger in Brooklyn, New York City, to an Austrian immigrant Edward Zeiger, a restaurant owner and defense plant worker, and his wife Jennie Gitlitz, a garment worker, who emigrated from Belarus. King grew up in a religiously observant Jewish home, but in adulthood became an agnostic.
King's father died at 44 of heart disease, and his mother had to go on welfare to support her two sons. His father's death greatly affected King, and he lost interest in school. After graduating from high school, he worked to help support his mother. From an early age, however, he had wanted to go into radio. King is a fan of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
A CBS staff announcer, whom King met by chance, told him to go to Florida, a growing media market where openings still existed for inexperienced broadcasters. King rode a train to Miami. After initial setbacks, King persisted and got his first job in radio. The manager of a small station, WAHR (now WMBM) in Miami Beach, hired him to clean up and perform miscellaneous tasks. When one of their announcers quit, they put King on the air. His first broadcast was on May 1, 1957, when he worked as the disc jockey from 9 a.m. to noon. He also did two afternoon newscasts and a sportscast. He was paid $55 a week. He acquired the name Larry King when the general manager Marshall Simmonds said that Zeiger was too ethnic and difficult to remember, so Larry chose the surname King, which he got from an ad in The Miami Herald for King's Wholesale Liquor, minutes before air. He started interviewing on a midmo
