Leno to leave NBC’s ‘Tonight Show’ next spring

NEW YORK — Jay Leno said he will be leaving NBC’s “Tonight Show” next
spring, to be replaced by Jimmy Fallon.

Leno announced the move Wednesday in a news release.

NBC also confirms that the show will be moving to New York City when Fallon
takes over. “Saturday Night Live” producer Lorne Michaels will take over as
producer of the new “Tonight Show.”

The move has been widely reported but not confirmed by the network until now.
NBC reportedly just wrapped up negotiations with Fallon on a contract extension.

NBC did not say who will replace Fallon in his current time slot, which is one
hour later than “Tonight.”
