Now that he's returning to his spot behind the desk on The Tonight Show, Jay Leno will get a chance to further discuss the move with Oprah Winfrey.

NBC dumps Conan for $45 million payoff; reinstates Jay as Tonight Show host

Winfrey announced on her show Friday that she was traveling to Los Angeles for a one-on-one interview with Leno to air Thursday. Her production company, Harpo, has also put out an offer to exiting Tonight Show host Conan O'Brien but his appearance has not yet been confirmed, the company told The Associated Press.

Leno's public persona has taken a notable hit in recent weeks after NBC's failed attempt to move O'Brien to 12:05 to allow Leno to return to late night. O'Brien ended his seven-month run as Tonight Show host Friday and Leno will resume hosting duties March 1.
