Leno to give keynote speech at Work Truck Show 2016

Jay Leno, comedian, author, car builder and longtime host of "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," will be the keynote speaker at The Work Truck Show 2016 on Thursday, March 3, as part of the President's Breakfast & NTEA Annual Meeting.

Leno was a staple of late night television for more than 20 years. After serving as the exclusive guest host for "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" since September 1987, he took over "Tonight Show" hosting duties in 1992. He quickly took his show to the top of the ratings. After retiring from "The Tonight Show" in 2014, Leno started a web series focused on his love of cars, “Jay Leno's Garage.”

"Jay Leno is one of the most accomplished, hardest-working entertainers in show business," says Matthew Wilson, 2016 NTEA Convention chairman, and chairman & CEO of Switch-N-Go, AmeriDeck & Bucks Divisions of Deist Industries. "In addition to being a famous late night host, he has pursued many other successful endeavors, including an online venture showcasing his affinity for automobiles. I think attendees will appreciate Leno's relatable manner and comedic style as he shares his life lessons and experiences."

A ticket is required to attend the President's Breakfast. Tickets cannot be purchased until registration for The Work Truck Show 2016 opens in October.
