Governor to Appear on The Tonight Show
Frankfort, KY: Governor Ernie Fletcher announced today he will appear on NBC’s “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” Tuesday, July 27th. The Governor will be a studio guest on the show, which is recorded in Burbank, California.
Earlier this month, Jay Leno joked about Kentucky’s new branding effort, saying a possible slogan for the state could be “Kentucky: got teeth.”
“We followed up and offered to provide some insight to our branding effort,” stated Governor Fletcher. “Subsequently, the Tonight Show with Jay Leno offered an appearance on the show.”
The Governor said today he “feels this is an opportunity to reach a large audience to let them know about what Kentucky’s doing to promote our great state. Hopefully, with Jay Leno’s humor we can start the effort to improve Kentucky’s image.”
“Besides,” continued the Governor, “who wouldn’t want to be on the same show as fellow Kentuckian Ashley Judd.” The actress is also scheduled to appear on tomorrow night’s show.
