Bob Saget Interview Taped Last Month To Air Friday On ‘CBS Mornings’ – Deadline


Comedian Bob Saget gave one among his closing interviews to CBS News’ chief medical correspondent Dr. Jon LaPook final month, and the speak will air tomorrow on CBS Mornings.

Watch a clip from the interview above.

In the interview, which was taped Dec. 6, Saget speaks to LaPook about shedding his sister in 1994 to scleroderma, a connective tissue illness. Saget how humor and performing helped him deal with the grief, saying, “It was a defense mechanism, and it truly helped me survive.”

Saget, who starred in tv’s Full House and hosted American’s Funniest Home Videos, died Jan. 9 in his room on the Ritz-Carlton resort in Orlando, Florida (he had carried out in close by Ponte Vedra Beach the earlier night). Although a reason for demise has not but been decided, a Florida medical expert has dominated out medication or foul play.

LaPook’s interview with Saget will air Friday, Jan. 14, on CBS Mornings. The morning present, co-hosted by Gayle King, Tony Dokoupil and Nate Burleson, airs weekdays at 7 a.m. on CBS.
