JIMMY FALLON REVEALS NEW HOUSE BAND AND STUDIO LOCATION ON FIRST VIDEO BLOG

The Roots will rock 30 Rock's Studio 6B, starting March 2, 2009

NEW YORK, NY - December 9, 2008 - In the first installment of his nightly video blog on www.latenightwithjimmyfallon.com, Jimmy Fallon introduced viewers to an early look at many of the new elements of his upcoming foray as host of "Late Night."

In the blog, Fallon revealed that critically acclaimed Grammy winning hip-hop band The Roots will become Fallon's house band when "Late Night" makes its broadcast debut. Named one of the twenty greatest live acts in the world by Rolling Stone, the Roots will bring their eclectic hip-hop sound to the new "Late Night."

"We are really excited to be working with Jimmy on the new 'Late Night,' said Roots founder Ahmir "?uestlove" Thompson, "It's also an honor to be working with an icon like Lorne Michaels. We are looking forward to becoming part of the history of 30 Rock".

Executive produced by Lorne Michaels, Fallon's "Late Night" will depart from David Letterman and Conan O'Brien's Studio 6A and cross the hall to Studio 6B in NBC's 30 Rockefeller Plaza headquarters in New York.

6B has a long history of comedy within its walls. 6B was the New York home of the first ten years of Johnny Carson's unprecedented "Tonight Show" tenure as well as for his predecessor Jack Paar, who made television history - in 6B - by quitting his own show on the air after NBC censored a joke the night before. In its days as a studio for NBC Radio, it hosted such comedy legends as Bob Hope and Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis. It housed the first late night show in television history "Broadway Open House" in 1950 as well as the legendary "Texaco Star Theater" starring Milton Berle. In addition, it was from Studio 6B that the infamous game show "Twenty One" (the basis of the film "Quiz Show") originated, as well as where the legendary Ernie Kovacs created innovative comedy on his groundbreaking daytime show.

"Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" is produced by Universal Media Studios and Broadway Video. Lorne Michaels is the executive producer. Michael Shoemaker produces.
