AIB Lifetime Achievement Award presented to Larry King
Television legend and news icon Larry King was honoured with the inaugural Association for International Broadcasting Lifetime Achievement Award.
The Award was presented on 4 November 2015 during the 11th AIBs, the annual awards for factual television, radio and online productions at LSO St Luke’s in London.
One of the best-known faces on news television in the world, King has interviewed the most prominent newsmakers in politics, as well as hundreds of celebrities and sports men and women.
“Larry King has been one of the most influential people in news television for the past three decades, and in radio for over 50 years,” said Simon Spanswick, chief executive of the AIB. “Larry is known across the world, thanks to his eponymous TV show that ran for 25 years on CNN and that’s now on RT Channel and Hulu. In recognition of his remarkable career on radio and television, and his extraordinary impact on the news industry, the Association for International Broadcasting is honoured to welcome Larry to London to present him with our inaugural Lifetime Achievement Award.”
