Anderson Cooper, appearing at the semiannual Television Critics Association press tour, addressed concerns that his work for CNN could impact his upcoming daytime talk show — with breaking stories forcing him to report for CNN from almost anywhere in the world.
Cooper said it’s not a problem, adding that he might even host live episodes of the talk show from the location where he’s covering news for CNN, reports Deadline.com.
"I covered, over the past year, Egypt, the tsunami in Japan and the tornado in Joplin," Cooper said. "If I were away someplace, we could have shows (in the can) that we would run, or we could actually do live shows from an event I was at. I’m not worried about it. It’s all very doable because I manage my time really well.”
He added that he’s not concerned about overexposure despite being on national TV twice daily, five days a week. "People just don’t watch TV every day," he said. "Except me, of course."
