Harry Smith will be on 'Murphy'

November 20, 1991|By Knight-Ridder

It took Harry Smith about, oh, a second and a half to accept a guest shot on "Murphy Brown."

"I think it's a hoot," said the "CBS This Morning" co-host, the latest big-name new celebrity -- including Connie Chung, Linda Ellerbee and Walter Cronkite -- to appear on the CBS sitcom. "They called out of the blue. It's not something I campaigned for."

At first, "Murphy" "was so frighteningly familiar and real, I thought one of the producers on our staff was writing under a 'nom de plume,'" said Smith, 40. "Now it's not as spooky as it used to be. Maybe I'm used to it."

The segment airs Dec. 9.
