WWD: So what's this party for, exactly?
Larry King: I've been on the air 50 years.
WWD: Wow. That's a long time. How old are you now?
L.K.: 73. I'm 73 years old.
WWD: And you still enjoy this talk show thing?
L.K.: I enjoy it every night. I still get the same kick.
WWD: And you're on how many nights a week now?
L.K.: Five. Five nights a week.
WWD: Five, wow. You recently had a health scare, right?
L.K.: I had a corroded artery.
WWD: And what do they do for that?
L.K.: They go into your neck and take the plaque out of your artery.
WWD: Now, you're known for being a very tough interviewer so I'm going to ask you a tough personal question. Is your wife here?
L.K.: She's right there.
WWD: And is she your first wife?
WWD: Here's another. What's your favorite question to ask people on your show?
L.K.: It fits any subject, any answer. It always works. You could ask why all day long. — Jacob Bernstein
