The ‘King’ of Talk Returns to Radio via Cumulus Media

Talk radio and television legend Larry King returns to radio after a 6 decade hiatus via a new nationally syndicated one-minute daily radio feature, ‘Larry King Droppin’ In.’  The new short form series will  launch on terrestrial radio stations across the country on starting today and will highlight King’s observations and personal experiences on a wide variety of topics. ‘Larry King Droppin’ In’ is heard Monday through Friday in morning drive on over 50 Cumulus stations including WABC-AM in New York,  KABC-AM Los Angeles and WLS-AM Chicago.

Long before his long running CNN show ‘Larry King Live’, King began his career in radio as a disc jockey in 1957.  Eventually he went on to host his own national nightly talk show in 1978 for the Mutual Broadcasting System.  Cultivating an audience through his interactive caller platform and interesting political opinions, Larry King received critical acclaim and became one of the most listened to radio personalities in America. Many consider Larry King as the inspiration of many popular talk radio hosts today such as Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity.

AARP, a digital distribution partner through a Media Player, produced by Impact Shift Media, will carry the daily feature along with bonus audio, a variety of Larry King related content, and ongoing coverage of his return to radio on www.aarp.org/larryking.
