shy = scared of meeting and talking to others morbidly = abnormally Therefore it means he was extremely nervous about doing the interviews, and didn't do many

Adding to Chris’s good answer: “morbid” is an adjective relating to disease, so “morbidly shy” means “so very shy that it is harmful to the person, just like a disease would be.”
