(AP) — CNN says its former talk show host Larry King has been hospitalized with COVID-19 for more than a week. The news channel said Saturday the 87-year-old King is undergoing treatment at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Hospital protocols have kept King’s family members from visiting him.

He has had medical issues in recent decades, including heart attacks and diagnoses of diabetes and lung cancer.
