When Larry King announced he would step down from his nightly live broadcast after more than 40,000 interviews, it signalled the end of an era in television history. At the same time, drama surrounding Larry's personal life was playing out in the headlines. Truth Be Told is a revealing and irresistibly entertaining look back on Larry's remarkable run at CNN, an honest look at Larry's own life, and a behind-the-scenes bird's-eye view of some of the marvellous people Larry has met and talked to throughout his career.
This difficult period caused Larry to realize how much the world around him had changed over the course of his 50-year career. Looking at today's cultural and political luminaries as examples, Larry reflects on these changes and has a lot to say about everything and everyone: from marriage, politics, sports, and entertainment to the justice system, broadcasting, and the American future. This is a candid and surprising look inside the monumental career of one of the most powerful and legendary talk-show hosts as he signs off from the nightly television program that has been close to all of our hearts.
