L.A. names block near CNN after King
EmptyA city block that surrounds a CNN building in Hollywood has been named after the cable network's talk-show host Larry King.
The City Council voted Wednesday to rename the block "Larry King Square" in recognition of King's 50 years in broadcasting.
King, who started his career at a Miami radio station in 1957, hosts CNN's longest-running interview program, "Larry King Live."
The council also agreed to name an intersection near Paramount Studios "I Love Lucy Square," after the late comedian Lucille Ball and Lucy Casada, who owned a popular restaurant there called Lucy's El Adobe Cafe.
Ball and her husband, Desi Arnaz, also had a production company at the intersection of Melrose Avenue and Plymouth Boulevard.
