Conan O’Brien Opens Up About NBC Departure

In his first interview since walking away from NBC’s “Tonight Show," Conan O’Brien tells “60 Minutes” Sunday night that he believes he was not given a fair chance to prove he could succeed and that money may have been the reason NBC decided to bring Jay Leno back to late-night television.

Mr. O’Brien granted the interview to the CBS correspondent Steve Kroft under the provision that it could not be broadcast until after May 1, because in his departure agreement with NBC he was prohibited from appearing on television or any other form of media until after that date.

The story is too old to be commented.
