Oprah, Larry King In Reported "Booking War" Over Marcus Schrenker

Posted: Updated:

Larry King and Oprah are reportedly in a booking war over Marcus Schrenker, the Indiana money manager who faked his own death earlier this year.

"NBC's Dateline profiled his story in May but now it appears that Larry King and Oprah Winfrey are trying to book Schrenker," reports Indianapolis NBC affiliate WTHR.

Of course, it's not King and Winfrey themselves going after the exclusive, but producers/bookers on their staffs. Oprah recently told "The Insider" that she doesn't really care about "getting interviews first and all that stuff," but that she is very interested in sitting down with Jaycee Dugard.
