At the start of the show:

MW - "Pardon the interruption, but i'm Mike Wilbon. Tony, Oprah's moving to cable, what does she need to know?"

TK - "And i'm Tony Kornheiser...watch out for Jon Gruden."

MW - "That is such a cheap shot!"

TK - "Ok, lemme rephrase that, don't put on Artie Lange."

*laughter from Wilbon*

TK - "You think Oprah knows who Artie Lange is?"

MW - "Yes, I think she has a better chance of knowing Artie Lange than Jon Gruden."

Yeah, I guess she is moving to cable, but not until 2011 or 2012, or whenever her syndication contract runs out.

And, I bet Oprah doesn't know who Artie is...if you believe the "Oprah at Sirius" discussions of what she made the Sirius people do when she was there.


And I sent the text of the conversation to the Howard 100 News email address... They probably won't do anything with it, but they do like the mentions of Howard (and others) in the media, as evidenced from the various Jeopardy (and other) mentions.
