David Letterman invited Oprah Winfrey to his alma mater, Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana Monday. The candid conversation, part of a series Letterman puts on, lasted an hour and 40 minutes — 45 minutes longer than scheduled.

After her Letterman sitdown, Winfrey talked with CBS’s Jeff Glor, for an interview that aired on “CBS This Morning:” “It felt like Dave was giving me therapy,” says Winfrey. “I am sitting on stage in a real conversation with Dave Letterman about things that I haven’t thought about for years,” she tells Glor.

Also reflective this morning, “CBS This Morning” hosts Charlie Rose and Norah O’Donnell. “This has been a great broadcast,” said Rose at the end of the show. “Think of the people that have been on. Warren Buffett, R.A. Dickey was here. Oprah Winfrey. What a great job to have.” O’Donnell responded: “It is. And you know what, Charlie? It’s the best job I have ever had. I do mean that. And a lot of it has to do with you and Gayle. Not [show EP] Chris Licht, though,” O’Donnell chuckled.
