Conan will sign off Friday

Posted:

NBC (KWWL)-- Conan O'Brien is officially out as host of The Tonight Show after seven months.

Overnight Thursday,  NBC confirmed it reached an agreement severing its ties with O'Brien.

This now clears the way for Jay Leno to return to his old time slot of 10:35 p.m. He plans to return to that slot in March.

More details of the deal will be announced Thursday morning.

NBC says O'Brien will be free to begin another TV job as soon as September.
