"Hi, this is Larry King. The phone-in topic today: ghosts and ghostbusting."

- Larry King; Ghostbusters

Larry King makes a cameo appearance as himself in Ghostbusters doing his national radio talk show The Larry King Show. [1]

HistoryEdit

After their first successful bust at the Sedgewick Hotel, the Ghostbusters start getting an incredibly growing workload throughout New York. This caused a media frenzy and resulted in some conspiracy theories. Larry King, on his nightly show, at one point says that he's heard rumors that the Ghostbusters are the cause of the disturbances.

CareerEdit

Larry King is a U.S. talk-show host. He worked in Miami, Fla., was a radio disc jockey, talk-show host, and freelance broadcaster and writer (1957 – 78). He hosted the popular national radio talk show The Larry King Show (1978 – 94), Larry King Live on CNN (1985 - 2010), and Larry King Now on Ora TV (2011 - present). Known for his easygoing interviewing style with celebrities, news makers, and world leaders, he conducted more than 30,000 interviews on his two shows.

TriviaEdit

  • Larry King's conversation with a female caller, who commented about Egon Spengler and a prediction of a "psychic shock" her aunt made by reading coffee grounds, was recorded but not used in the film. In similar fashion, King's scripted dialogue was reworked on the spot then later pared to the bone in editing. [2]
  • Joe Medjuck recalled people on the East Coast were impressed Larry King appeared in the movie but people on the West Coast had no idea who he was. [3]
