One of Norah O’Donnell’s Funniest ‘CBS This Morning’ Moments Involves Shaq

By Merrill Knox 

“CBS This Morning” co-host Norah O’Donnell shares her pre-show media prep with The Atlantic Wire. O’Donnell starts her day at 3 a.m. and makes her way through six different newspapers as she prepares for the show. She also shares this funny tidbit from the “CTM” set:

The funniest thing that’s ever happened to me during a commercial break is probably getting picked up by Shaquille O’Neal. He came by the show back in March — and during the commercial break, showed off his strength by picking me. He’s a fun guy and a big joker.

Fun fact: Shaq and O’Donnell both grew up in San Antonio. They attended rival high schools.
