Stang once told CTFT that "his favorite medium is the one he is working in at{that} moment. {He} believes his calm relaxed attitude is a reflection of his unique position on most shows. 'I am usually called in on a guest star basis. I've worked with practically every star in the business, and I've had allthe excitement without any of the crushing responsibilities. The applause that comes at the end of his show means only one thing to the star ... that it'stime to start worrying about next week's show. But I just take a bow, walk off, wash up, and go home.'"
