People say, ‘You look to be in great shape for your age,’ and I guess I am.
‘Music Hop’ in 1963 was my first hosting job of a variety program.
Maybe I’ll take a little better care of myself, but I wouldn’t count on it.
I would have loved to have a role in the HBO series ‘Deadwood.’ It was Shakespeare in the Old West.
I go through these cycles where I read a lot and then watch TV a lot.
I did everything – I did newscasts, I did sports, I did dramas.
My heart seems to heal, so that speaks well for my future.
Sex? Unfortunately, as you get older – and I shouldn’t admit this – there are other things that become more important in your daily life.
When you’re in your 30s and actively pursuing a career and a home life, a wife and children, you’re busy doing as opposed to busy thinking. As you get older, even as you don’t have as much time, I think you tend to think more and reflect more on what is happening in your own life.

The only reason I got into broadcasting was, I needed money to pay for my junior and senior years at college, and they hired me, those fools!
