Burbank, CA -

(FOX 11) The New York Times is reporting that the "Tonight Show" is expected to move to New York without its host, Jay Leno. The new host? Jimmy Fallon.

"While the network has yet to complete a deal, it has made a commitment to Jimmy Fallon, the current host of its 'Late Night' program, to have him succeed Jay Leno as the next host of 'Tonight,' according to several senior television executives involved in the decision. The show would move from Burbank, Calif., back to New York, where it first started in 1954 with Steve Allen as host."

The switch is supposed to happen in the fall of 2014, according to the newspaper.

The paper also reports that NBC "has quietly begun work on a new studio in its headquarters building at 30 Rockefeller Plaza as the home for the new 'Tonight'"

FOX 11 is reaching out to NBC for a comment.
