Conan O’Brien has granted his first post-Tonight show interview to CBS’s 60 Minutes, the New York Times reported today (Wednesday). Speaking with the newspaper, Steve Kroft, who conducted the interview, said that while it will highlight O’Brien’s description of the events surrounding his decision to leave NBC, he remains under legal restrictions not to disparage NBC or Jay Leno. “He flirts with the restrictions,” Kroft told the Times. Under terms of his termination agreement with NBC, O’Brien agreed not to give any interviews until after May 1. Kroft said that because of that agreement, the network will have to be creative in coming up with ads to promote the show this week.
