Chat host has surgery.

AMERICAN chat show host Larry King is recovering after undergoing surgery at a hospital in Los Angeles.

The 73 year-old CNN presenter had been suffering a narrowing of the carotid artery, hampering blood flow.

He was admitted to Cedars Sinai medical centre, performed the operation on Friday.

King underwent quintuple bypass heart surgery in 1987, and recently started a foundation that will cover the cost of cardiac care for 300 uninsured patients in the city.

A spokesman for the broadcaster said: "Larry is doing great and he expects to be back on air on Monday."
