Larry King, is an American television and radio host. He
is recognized in the United
States as one of the premier broadcast
interviewers of modern times. King has conducted some 40,000 interviews with
politicians, athletes, entertainers, and other newsmakers. He has won an Emmy
Award, two Peabody
Awards, and ten Cable ACE Awards. King began as a local Florida journalist and radio interviewer in
the 1950s and '60s. He became prominent as an all-night national radio
broadcaster starting in 1978, and then came to dominate the airwaves when he
began hosting the nightly interview TV program Larry King Live on CNN, which
started in 1985.
Born November 19, 1933, his primary personality traits
are ruled by the Chinese Zodiac elemental animal, the Water Rooster. The Water
Rooster is perhaps the most intellectual and flexible of the species. We find
we can usually reason with him, especially in an academic environment. He is
very social and put his communications skills to good use in that context.
This, plus his penchant for dressing smartly means that he is likely to be not
only an excellent orator but also to have a commanding presence.
