Ann Curry to Oprah Winfrey: ‘Was it you or ‘Good Morning America’ that hung up on us just now?’

Oprah Winfrey made the rounds this morning on the morning shows. She phoned in to talk about the dangers of talking and texting while driving. But, despite GMA’s claim of being an exclusive, Winfrey dialed into CBS’ “The Early Show” and NBC’s “Today” show too.

At one point, “Today” lost Oprah’s call. When they came back from break, Ann Curry joked, “We’re told that Oprah is back on the phone with us. Oprah, was it you or ‘Good Morning America’ that hung up on us just now?”

“It was not I,” said Oprah.

And Oprah’s appearances didn’t end there. She called up MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” around 8:45amET. “Oh my gosh I finally made the “Morning Joe” show,” said Winfrey. “I love the Morning Joe team.”

As part of the plan, Oprah is asking people to pledge not to talk or text while driving. So far there are 219,000+ pledges on the No Phone Zone pledge on Oprah.com.
