Longtime talk-show host, Larry King, is recovering in the hospital following a heart procedure.
While some reported King was hospitalized after going into cardiac arrest, the network behind Larry King Now dispelled the rumors, sharing, “To be clear, and contrary to published reports, his doctors say he did not have a heart attack and he did not go into cardiac arrest.”
USA Today is reporting the legendary TV host was “set to have a scheduled angioplasty on Thursday when he began experiencing angina and went to the hospital early to be examined.”
Ora TV released a statement saying, “His doctor successfully performed the angioplasty and inserted stents to reopen the previous bypass from 1987. He has been recuperating in the hospital and is scheduled to be released soon. His doctors expect him to make a full recovery.”
King quit his 3-pack-a-day cigarette habit and lost weight after he suffered a heart attack in 1987 and underwent quintuple bypass surgery.
