AP — Celebrities and interview subjects, from Bill Clinton to Oprah Winfrey, are mourning the death of Larry King.

His broadcast interviews with world leaders, movie stars and ordinary Joes helped define American conversation for a half-century.

King died Saturday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles at age 87.

On social media, King was remembered by a number of figures and fans, including singers Barbra Streisand and Bette Midler, entertainer 50 Cent and actors Reese Witherspoon, George Takei and Albert Brooks.
