Conan O’Brien will be the first late night host to produce a full show remotely when he returns at the end of the month. Talk shows are having to innovate different ways to keep broadcasting whilst at the same time adhering to social distancing guidelines.
Conan O’Brien Shooting Show With iPhone and Skype
Mr. O’Brien tweeted that he will return to the air on March 30 and that all his staff will work remotely. He said he was going to shoot the show using his iPhone and Skype.
Late night rival Jimmy Fallon also appears to be making use of Apple products to keep his show going. He tweeted a clip using what appears to be an iPad Pro and an Apple Pencil.
Presenters such as Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel, and Mr. Fallon have been creating small segments whilst they are unable to have audiences due to the coronavirus pandemic. Mr. O’Brien, however, will broadcast full-length shows.
