Quotes: “Two hours on television just doesn’t automatically happen. I’m up early, I’m reading newspapers online, talking to my staff, coming up with ideas.” | “Almost every day I wrap up my two-hour live broadcast and I say to myself as I’m driving home, ‘I wish I would’ve done this’ or ‘We really should have gone live longer with this segment.’ ”
