“I’m not getting any younger. A couple of years. You know what I’m really sensitive about? I’d rather leave a couple years too early than a couple years too late…I don’t have a date in mind, but two, three [years], something like that,” he revealed of how much longer he’ll host the show.

He also spoke about his emergency surgery, and how scary it was for him and his family prior to that moment.

“I remember thinking, not in a morbid way, ‘I think this must be death. This must be what death is like.’ And all I thought of, hearing their voices, I thought, ‘Boy, their lives are gonna change now.’ And I felt badly for them. I didn’t feel badly about dying. I felt badly that they were gonna have to deal with the aftermath.”
