Katie Couric scored the first on-camera interview with Manti Te'o for her nationally Syndicated daytime talk show, KATIE. Today, Couric sat down with Te'o and his parents, Brian and Ottilia Te'o, who are speaking out for the first time on camera about the football player's recent scandal. Check out a clip from the interview below!

The Notre Dame football star and Heisman Trophy runner-up has claimed he is the victim of a hoax, after it was revealed that his girlfriend never existed and her death was faked.

During the interview, the host joked, "I understand you would fall asleep holding the phone. Or with the phone next to you connected to this individual and then when you woke up, you would talk to this person. I hope you have rollover minutes by the way." "Mobile to mobile," Te'o responds, cracking a smile.

"Katie" Katie is a Syndicated talk show co-owned and hosted by ABC News correspondent and former CBS Evening News anchor Katie Couric, co-produced by CZ Productions and Times Square Studios, in association with and distributed by Disney-ABC Domestic Television. The show premiered on September 10, 2012. Check local listings.
