Carlos Saks is filthy rich.

He’s 71 years old.

He’s #23 on Forbes list of powerful people.

He’s #1 on their Billionaires list.

He has a fortune of $74 Billion.

His wealth is roughly 5% of Mexico’s annual economic output,

And, if the rumor mill is correct, he’s about to hook up with Larry King for an online venture.

Larry King, whose CNN show “Larry King Live” ran for 25 years from 1985 to 2010. He signed off on December 16, 2010 and handed the reins to Piers Morgan.

Given the high-profile personalities attached to this project, everyone is staying mum about it. King’s attorney did say: “I can confirm that there have been discussions in which I participated.”

Larry King spent his entire career in broadcasting, so an online venture would be a departure for him. But, with the kind of name recognition he has, it’s easy to see why a moneybags like Carlos Saks would court him.
