Robin Quivers Today Show Interview

After 9/11, Robin said, “I thought I would be one of the people who couldn’t help myself out of that (World Trade Center) building. If I was there, someone would have to help me. I’d be one of those people you had to come and get. And I thought, this is not any way to live and I need to figure out what’s wrong.”

What she figured out, and how she feels it helped her body to be strong when the cancer hit her in 2012, has been detailed in her book, “The Vegucation of Robin: How Real Food Saved My Life.” The book, which is available in stores now, is not a diet book or a cookbook, but it explains her journey from that revelation to getting her daily nutrition on track.

“When you consider that I went through chemo and radiation and hardly had any side effects — I saw other people and they were going through the same thing I was, my situation wasn’t complicated by other illnesses, other medications,” she said. “Basically I was strong going in.”

“I feel fantastic,” she said. “I’ve been declared cancer-free for about three or four months now. It’s just a matter of still recovering at home, past all that treatment that kept me out of the studio for this long. But I’ve been feeling really good.”

Stern’s upcoming TV appearances

With about six weeks until Howard Stern makes his primetime network debut on NBC reality show “America’s Got Talent” on May 14, the shock jock announced he’s ramping up the publicity in the coming days. He will be visiting “The View,” “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” and the “Today” show in an effort to promote the talent show, according to a tweet from his satellite radio show’s Twitter account.

Conspicuously missing from this list: “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” Though given how vocal Stern has been about his dislike for Leno, it’s unlikely, which is unfortunate for everyone who loves trainwreck TV.

Stern has been traveling the country over the last few weeks for auditions; NBC wound up moving the competition series from Los Angeles to New York so Stern could take part while also working on his NYC-based radio program.
