In a meeting yesterday, Jay Leno told his staff he’d continue to pay their salaries through Christmas, Variety reports.
Previously, Mr. Leno had been paying them on a week-by-week basis, which he’ll continue to do after the holiday, he reportedly said.
More from Variety:
Most of the other latenight hosts previously had made plans to ensure their staffers continued drawing some sort of salary. Leno had made such promises at the start of the strike, which made his initial failure to follow through last week puzzling. People familiar with Leno’s thinking, however, insist it was all just a communication glitch and noted that none of the staffers came close to missing a paycheck.
