Howard had the King of Cable into the studio, and explained that he used to make prank calls for the show when he was 15 years old, which he added was 13 years ago. Howard mentioned King had come out of the closet since they last spoke, and King acknowledged he knew he was gay for as long as he could remember.
King then said he went to college and got a degree in communications, and it was about that time that he stopped making prank calls. King added his parents were "disappointed" in him when he used to make prank calls, and Howard honored him by playing some of his calls.
Following some of the clips, Kevin the Intern entered to report that King had hit on him prior to his interview, but that he turned down the offer seeing as he wasn't gay. Howard then announced that Scott DePace was "disgusted" by King, and Scott came in to explain he had nothing against King, but was put off by the more graphic comments he was making about his sexual practices. After King replied by taking shots at Scott's shirt, Howard asked Scott to leave the studio so he could "celebrate King's return."
Howard played more tapes from King's career, including one to a PBS telethon whose organizers actually took him to court over his prank, only to have the case dropped after they found out King was only 15 years old. Capt. Janks called in to recall how he used to work with King on prank calls, and King noted that he "loved" Janks.
As King's interview wound down, Howard pointed out that he felt the prank calls people made on behalf of the show, especially in the early years, brought everyone together, and Artie added the promotion the calls gave to the show was immeasurable as well.
