Still working on getting the audio from Sam's Howard Stern interview this morning...but in the meantime here's what they posted about it on Howard's site...
SAM 'THE COOKING GUY' IS A HERO
Howard got Sam 'The Cooking Guy' Zien on the line to celebrate the clip he played yesterday in which Sam told 'Today' show host Kathie Lee Gifford to stop talking over him. Sam shrugged it off: "I feel like, you know, they brought me up to do a job – like you were saying yesterday – and all of a sudden I had to cut through it somehow."
Sam said he was a little miffed when he was asked back to the 'Today' show a couple weeks later for a intervention segment with an 'etiquette expert': "I don't think I did anything wrong. I don't think I had anything to apologize for." Sam laughed that the second segment actually proved his point, as Kathie Lee and her co-host kept talking over the 'etiquette expert' as well. Sam added that he still appears on the 'Today' show, but: "When I'm on now, I'm not on with them."

SAM ZIEN IS A HERO
Howard played a clip of Sam 'The Cooking Guy' Zien telling Kathie Lee Gifford to stop talking over him during a cooking segment on 'The Today Show' – and Kathie Lee's don't-talk-to-us-like-that retort: "She's got to gobble up the world, that hungry...Oh she's so hungry. Her hunger irritates me. Her hunger irritates me!" Howard thought Sam should've gone further: "He should've stuffed that food right in her mouth...he should've stuck his f’ing fork in her tongue."
Howard was particularly incensed with Kathie Lee's power play ("Can't anyone stand up to Kathie Lee? She's the devil! She's the devil!") and her incessant chatter: "Kathie Lee's a child. An attention sucking child." Howard later joked: "It's like having Scott Greenstein's in the room with you."
