King, who made a name for himself as a CNN host and USA Today columnist, has experienced a series of health issues over the last several years.

He’s been diagnosed with prostate and lung cancer, suffered a heart attack and stroke, and was hospitalized back in November because of a blood-flow issue.

Last year, King lost two of his five children within weeks of each other. Son Andy King died of a heart attack at 65 in August, and daughter Chaia King died from lung cancer at 51 in July, Larry King said then in a statement.

“It is with sadness and a father’s broken heart that I confirm the recent loss of two of my children, Andy King, and Chaia King. Both of them were good and kind souls and they will be greatly missed …” King wrote in an Instagram post in August.

“Losing them feels so out of order. No parent should have to bury a child. My family and I thank you for your outpouring of kind sentiments and well wishes.”
