President Barack Obama made probably his last visit to Burbank on Tuesday as he visited his favorite late night talk show, The Tonight Show.
Traffic on Hollywood Way was shut down completely as the President’s motorcade transported the Commander-In-Chief from and to Bob Hope Airport before departing to Van Nuys and ultimately to the Hilton in Woodland Hills for the night.
Officers from many jurisdictions lined the motorcade at every street and alley entrance to provide security. Many residents came to catch a glimpse of the President as he drove by.
The motorcade had two identical vehicles in front and the President switches at random which one he rides in. There is also a full armed Secret Service unit following along with Swat, the pres corp, an ambulance, and many other support vehicles.
This will probably be the last time for the President in Burbank because NBC has declined to pick up late night’s rating leader Jay Leno’s contract. Add to this the Tonight Show will move to New York and NBC no longer is in Burbank, with the Tonight Show now shooting at The Burbank Studios.
One myBurbank reader did Tweet though….maybe he will be back to be on the Ellen show sometime!
