Joining The K-EARTH 101 Morning Show in studio this morning, comedian/host Arsenio Hall spent some time talking about his experience competing and winning this season of Celebrity Apprentice.

He explains that Apprentice is unlike anything he’s had to do before, and the majority of the show is all about speed and accomplishing many tasks in a short amount of time.

Arsenio was competing for the Magic Johnson Foundation, a charity very close to his heart after losing a family member to AIDS, which he emotionally revealed after the final victory.

“It was such a complicated mission and you’re all wound up and emotion about, and finally I just had to tell people about it,” he said.

After his win, Arsenio is enjoying being thrown back into the spotlight and having brand new opportunities being presented. One thing Arsenio tells us he’s working on is coming back to TV as the host of a new talk show.

“I’m working on it, I’m working on it hard. I got this opportunity after winning ‘Apprentice,'” said Arsenio, explaining how he filled in one night on  Piers Morgan to interview Magic Johnson and his wife, Cookie.

“That night I said, ‘I wanna talk; I wanna host.’ I told my son I want to try to get a talk show,” he said.

We’re hoping it happens too so we can see Arsenio back in his element on TV!
