Unfortunately this Broadcasting & Cable supplement profile of Larry King — recognizing the 2006 Century Award he will recieve at this week’s Promax/BDA conference — doesn’t mention the CNN host’s uncertain future. But it points out that “King’s straightforward, non-confrontational interview style has become something of an anomaly on cable news.”

“There is a lot of screaming and yelling and jumping on people in cable news today,” King says. “I’m not a fan of that. I still think there is a place for long-form interviews with an interviewer who asks good questions without taking a stand and who listens to the answer.”
