For NBC UNIVERSAL, All BON JOVI All The Time
(From The New York Times)
Every network looks to book talent first -- NBC UNIVERSAL is taking the concept to a new level with the singer JON BON JOVI.
Over the next two months, Mr. Bon Jovi, whose new album, THE CIRCLE will be released November 10th, will be seen exclusively on shows on networks owned by NBC UNIVERSAL.
These appearances will include TODAY, THE TONIGHT SHOW, THE JAY LENO SHOW and SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE -- and even an interview on the NBC NIGHTLY NEWS with BRIAN WILLIAMS.
Mr. Bon Jovi also will appear on INSIDE THE ACTORS STUDIO on BRAVO.
Mr. Bon Jovi is being called NBC's "artist in residence" for the two months -- and that means he won't be anywhere else.
"Of course you usually try to be out there everywhere when a new album is coming out," Mr. Bon Jovi said in a telephone interview on Wednesday. "So we have to sacrifice certain shows and relationships."
