Leno currently produces and is host of the CNBC primetime series JAY LENO’S GARAGE now in its seventh season. The series debuted in October 2015 and delivered CNBC’s most-watched first season in network history.

Leno is the recipient of many honors, including Emmy, People’s Choice, and TV Guide awards, Harris Poll selection as most popular star on television, the Hasty Pudding Award at Harvard University, The Mark Twain Prize, recipient of the Patriot Award given by the Congressional Medal of Honor Society, a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, and being the first person to drive the pace car of all major NASCAR events.
