On second thought ...
A Boston TV station has reconsidered its decision to not airJay Leno
's new talk show.
WHDH-TV ownerEd Ansin
issued a brief statement Monday saying that "upon further consideration,” the station had decided to telecast Leno’s 10 p.m. talk show beginning in September.
He had previously said he would run a local newscast in that time slot instead, prompting a threat from NBC to strip the station of its network affiliation.
Ansin said he enjoys Leno’s humor and hopes the show is a big success. Leno is a native of Andover, Mass.
NBC TV Network PresidentJohn Eck said in a statement the network was “very pleased” with WHDH’s decision.
