After 17 years on the air, Last Call with Carson Daly will be ending its run, as longtime host Carson Daly is leaving the late-night series to focus on his expanding list of other endeavors.

The veteran talk show premiered in 2002, and has had an impressively-long run that has endured numerous changes and shuffling among other big-name late-night shows that aired before it in earlier time slots. Nevertheless the show continued on, itself experiencing format changes along the way, and will have produced 2000 episodes by the time it signs off for good.

Daly will now be more free to devote his time to being the host of the Orange Room on Today, as well as his producer and host roles on The Voice, and upcoming projects with The Golf Channel.

No date has been set for Daly's departure, though it will be by the end of the current season. Word is NBC is planning to continue with another late-night show in the same 1:30am time slot, though no formal announcement has been made on that front.
