UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. (AP) -- Just like in the early days of "Late Night with Conan O'Brien," Andy Richter is joining with O'Brien again. NBC says he'll be the new announcer on the "Tonight" show. And, he'll also be part of the show's comedy sketches. Richter was O'Brien's sidekick for the first seven years of "Late Night." Between the time he left in May of 2000 and now, he's bounced around from lead roles in some unsuccessful sitcoms to various TV guest roles to a few movies. O'Brien says he's looking forward to working with Richter on a daily basis again, particularly since Richter owes him $300.
