In the latest in a series of exits for NBC’s flagship morning show “Today,” longtime producer Jennifer Long is leaving the show. The New York Post’s Page Six reports that Long is headed to NBC’s “Tonight Show.”

Long has been a part of the morning program for 21 years, and has been one of its top segment producers.

“Long was lured by former ‘Today’ executive producer Jim Bell to become a producer on ‘The Tonight Show,'” The Post reports, adding: “In a staff meeting on Friday, ‘Today’ anchor Savannah Guthrie tearfully said that the entire staff would be waving ‘pompoms,’ rooting for Long’s success in her new adventure on late-night TV.”

The report notes that the move follows other “Today” departures.

“Senior 10 a.m. producer Adam Miller, senior 9 a.m. producer Christine Cataldi and chief investigative correspondent Jeff Rossen have all left in recent months,” The Post reports.


  1. Dear NBC best of luck with the “Today” show and be joy that Jennifer Long is remaining with NBC.
    Jennifer Long must be tired of dealing with such a big production & need one that demands less hours giving her more time & space on her personal life.
    Best to you Jennifer Long & we the audience gives you many thanks for so many wonderful years with “Today” 🤗🖤👍😊
