NBC “Dateline” correspondent Keith Morrison debuts sleep and meditation app, Calm, with narration designed to lull users to sleep.
The sleep story, titled “The Curious Case of the Overnight Oats,” is set to appear on the app on May 3 and will take listeners on a reimagined journey of the well-known “Goldilocks” tale.
In an exclusive interview with People, the award-winning journalist and “Dateline” correspondent for more than 25 years, Morrison says the idea of expanding his storytelling skills was never considered until “recently” after the people suggested it to him.
Morrison also said he was given a “template” when he decided on an original story to recite for the app in which he was told to modify as he saw fit.
“It’s a story of three bears and mush,” he told People. “I think the original story has been told once or twice, but it’s a different version.”
Morrison is among several public figures to tell a sleep story for the Calm app, alongside ‘Bridgerton’ star Jonathan Bailey, who just posted one on April 12. Other public figures who appear on the app include Harry Styles, Idris Elba, Kate Winslet, Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello and many more.
