End of an Era for NBC Burbank
The legendary NBC studios at 3000 West Alameda Ave. in Burbank will be vacated with the end of the Jay Leno era for the Tonight Show. Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show will be based out of New York. Also, the Los Angeles owned and operated NBC affiliate, KNBC-TV 4 is moving to the Universal lot due to the merger between NBC and Universal. KNBC has operated out of Burbank since 1962. Click here for a look at the new set for KNBC. You can watch a short video tour of the Burbank building here. The NBC building was the home of Johnny Carson's Tonight Show from 1972-1992, Days of Our Lives, Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In and many other shows over the years. It is truly one of the iconic facilities in the world of broadcasting. Above are photos from the walls of NBC studios that show the various celebrities who worked in the building.
