“Luckily for Americans across the country, local news stations are providing their own fresh take as the campaign winds down,” O’Brien said before introducing a clip of 12 local anchors saying “the final days of the campaign can get a little salty.”
O’Brien also poked fun at WOAW anchor Cami Mountain, who was featured in the clip. “Well, I’ve made it to the big times (said with all the sarcaism I can muster), Conan O’Brien talked about me on his show last night!,” Mountain wrote on Facebook. “I must admit, it’s quite funny.”
