It's reported that the TV producer contracted an infection after returning home from France with his wife nearly three weeks ago. The mogul is said to have been placed in the ICU to be treated for pneumonia — and was eventually placed on ventilator.

Tragic!

Unfortunately, the CEO of King World Productions' health deteriorated and was taken off life support. He died several hours later.

Michael was easily viewed as one of Hollywood's greatest TV producers with his daytime hits.

Our hearts go out to Michael's friends and family during this trying time.
