Ed Bark blogs about Larry King and Glenn Beck at the TCA Tour…
And so it begins. Day One of a dozen-day TV “press tour” dawned Tuesday with 73-year-old Larry King still kicking and CNN planning a big blowout this April to celebrate his 50 years behind a mike.
Suspender-less in a dark suit and black mini-boots, King pronounced himself good to go for another decade or so. Or as CNN Worldwide president Jim Walton put it, “In 20 years time, when Larry retires…”
He’s been doing CNN’s Larry King Live since June 1985, and “some people say I look better now than I did 10 years ago,” he opined. He did look pretty chipper, even if Walton pointedly referenced his age by telling TV critics, “There’s no question that Larry can sit in his chair as long as he continues to perform.”
