The 87-year-old former host of CNN’s long-running “Larry King Live” was diagnosed with COVID-19 in January. He later died from sepsis, an infection unrelated to the virus. "Well, he was finally ready to go, I will tell you that. You know, he never wanted to go, but his sweet little body was just -- it had just been hit so many times with so many things, and once we heard the word COVID, all of our hearts just sunk,” said his widow, Shawn King. "But he beat it, you know, he beat it, but it did take its toll and then the unrelated infection finally is what took him, but boy, he was not going to go down easily."
