Fox affiliates chairman says Conan O'Brien 'doesn't seem to be on the front burner'

Posted on

Despite recent reports that negotiations to bring Conan O’Brien to Fox were advancing, the network’s affiliates chairman, Brian Brady, tells Broadcast & Cable: “To the best of my knowledge, no pressure has been asserted on any Fox affiliates [by the network]. There’s nothing definitive on Conan right now.” Brady acknowledges that a late-night show hosted by O’Brien will probably be discussed next month as part of the National Association of Broadcasters confab, but that “Conan doesn’t seem to be on the front burner. If it was, I’d be hearing about it.”
