O’Brien said, “In 1993, Johnny Carson gave me the best advice of my career: ‘As soon as possible, get to a streaming platform. I’m thrilled that I get to continue doing whatever the hell it is I do on HBO Max, and I look forward to a free subscription.”
General Manager of TBS Brett Weitz said, “Twenty-eight years is a monumental achievement in late-night television. We’re incredibly proud of the groundbreaking work that Conan and his team have accomplished during the 10 years at TBS and are so glad that we will continue to have his presence on our air with the ‘Conan Without Borders’ specials. We celebrate his success and are glad to see it grow across our WarnerMedia family.”
Chief Content Officer for HBO and HBO Max Casey Bloys said, “We can’t wait to see what he and the rest of Team Coco will dream up for this brand-new variety format each week.”
