The so-much-talked-about interview, which is programmed to last for two hours, at 8 p.m. Sunday, cost the network a fortune — most likely around $7 million and $9 million, according to the Wall Street Journal report.
CBS bought the rights to air and is reportedly charging $325,000 for every 30 seconds of commercial time from Winfrey’s Harpo Productions. The network can also license the interview in international markets.
Meanwhile, a spokesman for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry told the Journal that the Sussexes weren’t paid for the interview.
In a teaser which was released on “CBS This Morning” Friday, Meghan tells Winfrey she feels “liberated” to speak for herself after turning down the TV host’s’ initial request during her wedding in 2018 because she wasn’t allowed to talk to her.
