The longtime TV host Larry King is hospitalized in Los Angeles receiving treatment for COVID-19, multiple media outlets reported Saturday.

Showbiz 411 was first to report the news, saying the 87-year-old interviewer has already been hospitalized for 10 days. His condition was unclear.

CNN’s Brian Stelter reported that King’s three sons haven’t been able to visit him due to the hospital’s COVID-19 protocols.

King’s representatives did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.

The famed broadcaster recently endured back-to-back tragedies over the summer. His son Andy, 65, and daughter Chaia, 52, died within three weeks of one another in 2020.
