NEW YORK, NY, October 2, 2013 – Beginning this month, broadcasting legend Larry King will distribute a one minute daily feature "Larry King Droppin' In," brought to you by Toyota.

The "Larry King Droppin' In" series will highlight King's thoughts and personal experiences on a variety of topics as they relate to his 50+ years in broadcasting. The Larry King Cardiac Foundation and Keep Memory Alive will be beneficiaries.
To launch his new relationship with AARP, King will be a featured panelist during the upcoming Life@50+ National Event and Expo on October 5th in Atlanta, Georgia at the Georgia World Congress Center.
