The tough questions
: Howard Stern is about to explode the cozy, boring institution of the TV interview. ABC has signed Stern to a one-time interview special (probably a test). He really is the best interviewer on broadcast; if he wants to know something (which means we want to know it) he won’t let go until he gets it out of you.
Today, he said that he should interview Saddam Hussein.
“There’s probably no better interviewer than Howard Stern, and ABC knows this,” a source told The Post….
“You can bet Howard will shake up the format of the TV interview,” a Stern associate gloated last night. “Don’t be surprised that after his show gets huge ratings, Barbara Walters is suddenly asking her guests about their penis size.”
