Jay Leno’s Biography
Jay Leno was born in New Rochelle, New York. His mother Catherine, a housewife, was born in Greenok, Scotland and emigrated to the United States at the age of eleven. His father, Angelo Leno, worked in an insurance company and was born in New York, where his parents also emigrated from Flumeri, Italy. Leno grew up in Andover, Massachusetts, and studied speech therapy at Emerson College, where he graduated in 1973. Leno has a brother who is an ex-combatant. He is married to philanthropist Mavis Leno since 1980. The couple decided not to have children.
As he got older, Leno used to say he would be Johnny Carson’s successor, something he finally did. At the beginning of his professional career, Jay Leno made announcements for the well-known snack brand Doritos. At the end of the 70s he became the opening act for artists such as Johnny Mathis, Tom Jones or John Denver. In 1992, he replaced Johnny Carson as the presenter of the television program The Tonight Show, which he left in May 2009, with Conan O’Brien taking his place, however, he returned to this in early 2010, after which O ‘Brien was fired.
After 17 years presenting The Tonight Show consecutively, on April 25, 2009, he could not attend because he was hospitalized, according to his representative, for a lesser cause.
On March 1, 2010, he regained control of The Tonight Show due to his resignation due to schedule problems with “The Jay Leno Show” and “The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien” by O’Brien. His last “Tonight” was on February 6, 2014, which reached 14.6 million viewers, thus retiring from television after 22 years, not the stand-up comedy. “The Tonight Show” will now be hosted by Jimmy Fallon, who took over on February 17, 2014 under the name of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Leno was the host of the 1990 Primetime Emmy Awards. In 2000 he made his mark on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In an interview in August 2007 that made CNN journalist Anderson Cooper on his show The Tonight Show, Jay Leno confirmed that he is dyslexic.
