Carson Daly’s late-night series, Last Call with Carson Daly is ending after nearly two decades on the air with NBC.
According to TVLine, Carson decided to end the show in order to spend more time with his family and concentrate on his other hosting gigs on NBC’s Today show and The Voice. Daly also indicated he has a “few exciting things in the works” with The Golf Channel.
“If you had told me in 2002 I would be a part of the historic NBC late-night family for 17 years, I would have said you were crazy!” Daly said in a statement. “Hard to believe it’s been so long — 2,000 episodes. It’s time to move on to something new and let someone else have access to this incredible platform. My twenties were about finding a good job. My thirties were about taking on as many of them as I could. Now, in my forties, I’m focused on quality over quantity. I want to do more with my Today family and continue hosting and producing The Voice and explore new opportunities.”
“I’m forever grateful and proud to all who have worked with us at Last Call over the years. So many have gone on to achieve incredible success… I could have all the jobs in the world, but none of them are more important to me than that of Dad. My family will always remain my top priority and greatest gig.”
