The springtime sun was shining when I entered the room, and Conan was standing by the window in his study, surveying his vast ostrich ranch in the rugged hills of El Segundo. I had urgent news. “Conan,” I said, “it’s all settled. The Burbank Syndicate is buying off your contract. It’s quite a substantial sum, and most importantly, you’re free! You don’t have to do this anymore! It couldn’t have worked out better!” He turned to me and smiled. “Oh, Ernie, that’s fantastic news!”
Conan: You’re Free! Andy Richter tells the shocking story behind Conan’s move to TBS.
