I'm glad he retired from CNN last year because for the last decade or so, he's been terribly screwing up in his interviews, saying the dumbest things possible. On the upside, the things he's said have been radio gold for Opie and Anthony.

After a chance meeting with a CBS staff announcer, King took the older man's advice and caught a bus for Florida, where a rapidly growing media market was creating an opening for less experienced radio personalities. After initial setbacks, King got his first break as a disc jockey on a Miami station and soon became a popular fixture of the South Florida radio scene. In 1960, he debuted with his first program on Miami television. Throughout the '60s and early '70s he built up his local following, adding a newspaper column to his radio and television chores.

Larry King Biography Photo Disaster struck in the '70s. King's involvement with a disgraced financier cost him his radio, television and newspaper jobs. He was deeply in debt and unable to find work in the Miami area, where he was best known. He slowly rebuilt his career, writing magazine articles and working in radio on the West Coast.
