Clinton in Talks for TV Show

  • August 21, 2002
The Associated press reports that former President Clinton's flirtation with becoming a talk show host has spread to CBS. Neither CBS nor Clinton's representatives would confirm that they are discussing a talk show, although the president's lawyer, Robert Barnett, told AP that Clinton has received an "enormous number of offers" from media outlets. Clinton met in May with executives from NBC. The New York Times reported Wednesday that those talks have collapsed. "August is rerun time, and we've seen this episode before," said Jim Kennedy, Clinton's spokesman. "It ends the same way - nothing is imminent." A spokesman for CBS, Dana McClintock, would not comment on the reports. CBS is a corporate cousin of King World, one of the leading companies that syndicates talk shows.
