Larry King to be honored with a lifetime achievement Emmy

After conducting over 50,000 interviews and setting a world record for the longest-running television show hosted by the same person, legendary talk show host Larry King will be honored with a lifetime achievement Emmy this fall.

"Larry King Live" debuted on CNN in June of 1985 and King continued to draw viewers with his unique conversational style to interviewing until he left the show in December of 2010.

Today on American Morning, King sits down with Carol Costello and Ali Velshi to discuss the highlights of his career and to explain the personal significance of the lifetime achievement award.

    When you enter a museum we want to know who painted the picture.If we've heard of him,it's a good picture;if not,we're not so sure until someone who has heard of him sats us straight on the matter.The nobler the truth or sentiment,the less immports the question of authorship.The next generation aint gonna look further becuase Larry has left a mark,he deserves this.
