Larry King Reflects On His Career In 1982 C-SPAN Clips (VIDEO)

Leave it to C-SPAN to unearth these two gems from their archives: Larry King in 1982, reflecting on his already-legendary broadcasting career and taping his all-night radio show. (H/T TVNewser.)

The channel exhumed the clips in honor of the end of "Larry King Live." The last show airs Thursday night.

Below, see King talk to self-confessed devotee Brian Lamb, and watch a portion of a radio show he did. (Also note how he knows just how long he has to light his cigarette and take a drag. Now that's professionalism.)
