Larry King: "Suspenders-Wearing Wizened Old Dick"

Lawrence Harvey "Larry King" Zeiger (born November 19, 1933) is an American host (of TV and radio shows), an author, a former newspaper columnist, and a suspenders-wearing wizened old dick.

Since 1985, King has hosted CNN's nightly interview show, Larry King Live. The title is increasingly ironic as time passes and the evenings when King doesn't seem on the verge of death grow fewer and further between.
