carsondaly2251 Behind the Scenes with AMP Mornings Carson DalyOur AMP Mornings DJ Carson Daly gives you the rundown on the recent NBC shake-ups, life after MTV, and a look at how his current TV show is reinventing late night.

Some of the Q&A includes Carson’s answers to questions like…

Do you watch anything on MTV now?
I don’t. I really don’t. I don’t watch Jersey Shore. I am busy. I am a father now. I have a year-old son. I do a radio show in Los Angeles every morning from six to 10 and then Last Call after that.

Did you have a back-up plan when you heard that NBC was switching up its late night line-up? For a second there, Conan was going to keep the Tonight Show at 12:05.
No, actually we knew we were OK much sooner than everyone else heard. I didn’t really have any time to panic, but I am just glad it worked out.

You have broken so many bands and cultural figures. Is there one you are especially proud of?
I can’t really take credit. That would be very egocentric of me to say I had anything to do with a band’s success. I was there at the time when Eminem broke. You know, Eminem and Kid Rock in particular were two artists that I personally sat in on meetings and said, “I am all for this. He’s white, he raps but I really believe in him. I think he’s the real deal.” Kid Rock, the same thing on the rock side. Then they both ended up being tremendous artists.
