Quotes

  • I grew up watching Tom Snyder interviews. I loved him. There was a TV show that came out of the UK called “Dave Allen at Large” that I grew up watching and I really loved that. I think Howard Stern is an incredible interviewer. And of course I love Larry (King)! Who doesn't love Larry? Larry's great, Barbara's great, Oprah's amazing; and Bill Simmons.
  • I love radio and I've spent so much time listening to radio and being a part of radio that I would sit at night and I would listen to - before there was satellite radio and all that - I would get Howard Stern on an AM radio show that would ONLY come through when it was dark out.
  • And as the sun would rise, the AM signal would fade so I would just, I would ride home from work and then I would sit at the end of my bed and I would listen to Howard Stern's voice until it crackled off and then was replaced by some other local radio station.
  • We're polite but we're not passive. I think that's the big difference. We're not a passive bunch. We'll hold onto it for a while. We're very patient. But I think it's a very polite country. ... I don't know, what are some other Canadian stereotypes?
  • Aboot's totally true! But that's only because we pronounce it the way it's spelled. There's a 'u' for a reason. America has so MANY different accents! People from Georgia do NOT speak the way that people from Minnesota speak and they do not speak the same way as people from Boston. There's so many accents down here.
  • f I wasn't in broadcasting I would like to grow a gigantic beard; and I would like to open a motorcycle garage somewhere in the desert in Nevada and I would disappear and work on bikes, make them really fast. I would love to just race motorcycles for a living if I could do it, but I'm just not that good at it so this is what I'm doing.
  • Well, here's the thing: I don't have any kids or dependents or pets or plants - so I just have bikes. I have several. I like sport bikes, I like race bikes; I used to drive more cruisers. I used to like to ride a more laid back bike, then I sort of got into sport bikes now. So I'm currently bombing a monster around town.
  • I think I'd love to interview Bill Gates. Bill Gates would be really - and Neil Young! - but Bill Gates would be, kind of the bar, if you think of all the spaces he's occupied, just the idea of doing what he did in the tech world and then becoming the philanthropist that he is, but being a really progressive and even aggressive philanthropist in the company that he keeps I think is really interesting.
  • What I do, really, is just getting involved in people's lives. I like having good conversations with people; and I do that there, I'll do that here at CNN, I'd do that if I was sitting on a streetcar beside somebody.
  • So I just like having conversations with people and I don't really think that has to change, because the audience just wants you to kind of explore the person sitting across from you and that's what I'll do.
