STATEMENT OF MAYOR MICHAEL R. BLOOMBERG ON ‘THE TONIGHT SHOW’ RETURNING TO NEW YORK CITY

“We’re thrilled ‘The Tonight Show’ is returning home to New York City, and it’s the perfect symbol of incredible comeback we’ve worked to create in our city’s film and television industry. Not since the since the invention of television has so much production been based in our city, which is creating good-paying jobs for New Yorkers in all five boroughs. Today, more than 130,000 New Yorkers make their living working behind the scenes on productions – a 30 percent increase over the past decade, and the numbers continue to grow. ‘The Tonight Show’ will bring even more jobs and economic activity to our city – and we couldn’t be happier that one of New York’s own is bringing the show back to where it started – and where it belongs.”
