Veteran broadcaster Larry King Hulus back to action
Internet » Interviewer takes his questions to the Internet.

< Previous Page

King hasn’t actually agreed to have his body frozen. He is intrigued by the concept, but Shawn, his wife, is not on board. She insists there is an afterlife. Her husband shrugs and says he has little hope there is.

Still, King has trouble considering the world going on without him.

"I can’t imagine eternity [and] I can’t imagine not being there," he said. "If I died today, I wouldn’t know who won the World Series — or who won the election."

Perhaps that explains why King refuses to retire?

"No, no. I’m doing the show because I love it," King said. Then he paused for a moment. "I guess it has something to do with keeping me going. I have a sense of being important, of counting, you know."

King’s plan is to keep asking questions and continue "Larry King Now" for another seven years — until 2020 — or until he dies.

"I think that’s the way it’s going to end," King said. "I will fall over. And Shawn will emcee the funeral, but she’ll be late. She’ll be home doing her hair."
