New bandleader announced for Leno

The Tonight Show with Jay Leno no longer needs to search for a new bandleader. As stated in a previous release, Kevin Eubanks is leaving the show on May 28th, after 18 years on the program. Executives with the series have announced that American Idol bandleader Rickey Minor will take over on June 7th, after a week of reruns following Eubanks’ departure.

Some sources thought that former Conan O’Brien bandleader Max Weinberg would jump to Leno’s program, but this has turned out to be nothing but a rumor.

The Tonight Show with Jay Leno airs weeknights at 11:35 PM on NBC.
