Leno Wants To Stay
Conan O'Brien is set to replace Jay Leno in his late night duties next year, but Jay isn't budging! He says he likes what he does, and has another ten plus years of hosting left in him.
Sony Pictures Television has made an approach through intermediaries to let Mr. Leno and his representatives know that as soon as he is allowed to discuss his next move, the studio will make him a rich offer for a syndicated late-night show that would make him the highest-paid host in late-night television, put his name on a new theater on the Sony lot and give him a financial interest in Sony music artists who appear on his show.
But Jay isn't exactly hurting for money, so his people say it's going to take a lot more than a paycheck to lure Jay out of his position. Are you ready to see Jay go and have Conan take his place?
