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

With iPhones and Skype, Conan O'Brien is going back on the air

NEW YORK -- 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.

O'Brien, though, is the first to try to remotely mount a full broadcast from home.

“The quality of my work will not go down because technically that’s not possible,” O’Brien joked in a statement.

The vast majority of people recover from the virus.
