An Emotional Jay Leno Says Goodbye to ‘The Tonight Show’ After 22 Years

Jay Leno has said goodbye to “The Tonight Show” before, but not like this. The comedian became tearful and choked up Thursday as he concluded what he called the “greatest 22 years of my life.” “I am the luckiest guy in the world. This is tricky,” said the emotional Leno, stepping down for the second and presumably last time as host of TV’s venerable late-night program. Jimmy Fallon takes over “Tonight” in New York on Feb. 17. Leno shared that he’d lost his mother the first year he became “Tonight” host, his dad the second and then his brother. “And after that I was pretty much out of family. And the folks here became my family,” he said of the crew and staff of “Tonight.”
