* Larry King.
Am I nuts or what, but this guy seems to be wiling to sell anything and everything on tv? Am I right or am I right?
Since this is a food blog, unless Jeff Eats is reading it all wrong…this guy Larry King isn’t “fronting”- bagel chain The Original Brooklyn Water Bagel Co. anymore. I could’ve sworn that his “mug” use to be plastered all over the Company’s website- brooklynwaterbagels.com…but no more. I wonder why?
In any event, Jeff Eats never really cared for Larry King when he was on CNN…always thought he was a big old phony…for reference GOOGLE his made-up relationship with baseball great Sandy Koufax.
The way I see it, with all of the endorsements he now has-out, I know I was right.
Always amazes me how guys like Larry King-get the public to follow them!
Really like Brooklyn’s bagels.
Just looked at its website and I also don’t see any Larry King mention.
Maybe they got rid of him.
Maybe he got rid of them.
Larry King had such low CNN ratings that the station got rid of him.
Now the old coot runs around on tv endorsing things.
I remember that phony Koufax story he had in his bio. The guy just made up things.
Never quite figured out why CNN kept him around for so long. Sort of like why does Al Sharpton have a show?
Unsophisticated marketers will often turn to “over the hill” TV/Movie personalities to hype their products. Once in a blue moon you will see a Shatner/Priceline hit. More often than not There is a short boost in sales that soon reverts to the norm.

I just looked at I don’t see any mention of King with Brooklyn Water on its site. Something must have happened there. By the way I really like Brooklyn’s bagels but am willing to bet that the water claims are all bs. Maybe King got spooked by that.
On King’s other endorsements, this guy is a whore, plain and simple. he’ll put his name on anything for a buck.
On Koufax King made up a whole story about him in his biography which was all bs.
King on his show was like a little ussy. Nothing probing.
By the way his CNN ratings were always lousy.
