Conan O’Brien and his final words on NBC

Posted on January 27, 2010


As a long time fan of Conan O’Brien, I was sadden by the news that he is being bumped off of the NBC late night line up. With network’s committment to Jay Leno, there was no room for the ‘Coco’ in late night after the schedule reshuffle. After only a 7 month run, Conan had to say goodbye on January 22nd and in the final few moments was allowed to say anything with no restrictions. I was so moved and impressed with Conan’s maturity and leadership through this transition. Besides being thankful to his supporters, he ended his final words with an inspirational challenge. These few serious moments with this comedian converted me from fan to ‘true believer’ of him. I have no doubt that with his perspective and attitude, success will be looking for him once again.
