Piers Morgan announced Thursday that Oprah Winfrey will be the first guest on his new talk show, but not before Howard Stern could reveal that he turned down the offer first.
“They had asked me at one point to be the first guest, which I was very complimented by” Stern told his satellite radio audience on Tuesday. “But at that point I wasn’t really sure I wanted to do it. I’m still not sure I want to do it, quite frankly. I hate being interviewed.”
Stern said he agreed to be one of five guests on the first week of Piers Morgan Tonight because Morgan is a friend of the Howard Stern Show.
