O'Brien buys LA home ahead of "Tonight Show" move
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - TV talk-show host Conan O'Brien has bought a Los Angeles home valued at just under $10.5 million in preparation for his move from New York to take over the reins of NBC's "The Tonight Show," the Los Angeles Times reported on Saturday.
The home, in the upscale neighborhood of Brentwood, boasts six bedrooms, a screening room, library, 1,500-bottle wine room, outdoor kitchen, pool and spa, the paper said.
O'Brien, 44, who is married with two preschoolers, is scheduled to replace Jay Leno at the helm of "The Tonight Show" next year, although Leno has reportedly had recent misgivings about stepping aside from the top-rated U.S. late-night show.
O'Brien hosts NBC's "Late Night with Conan O'Brien," which airs after "The Tonight Show."
