Report: NBC Wants Jay Leno to Stay with the Network After Leaving "Late Show"
He may be giving up his iconic late night hosting gig, but NBC says they hope that Jay Leno will stick around for years to come.
On Saturday (July 27), the network’s entertainment chief Robert Greenblatt revealed the news to the Television Critics’ Association summer tour audience.
“Nothing would make us happier than to have [Leno] — a la Bob Hope — stay at the network,” Greenblatt explained.
Although no specific details of his possible presence are known at this time, Leno is said to have a “lot of ideas” regarding a post-"Tonight Show" career.
