Conan O'Brien to return to air, with an iPhone from home

NEW YORK (AP) — With iPhones and Skype, Conan O'Brien is going back on the air.

The late-night host said he will resume putting out new episodes of TBS' "Conan" on March 30. His staff will remain at home, and the show will be cobbled together with O'Brien on an iPhone and guests via Skype. "This will not be pretty, but feel free to laugh at our attempt," said O'Brien on Twitter.

The late-night shows have shut down production due to the coronavirus pandemic to avoid congregating live audiences and large crews. Some hosts have pumped out web videos. O'Brien is the first to try to remotely mount a full broadcast from home. The vast majority of people recover from the virus.
