Arnold to Tell Jay First (Post, Aug. 2, 2003 )
For nearly a week, aides to the film star have said that he is not likely to run in the state's recall election this fall but had not quite made up his mind. A news conference was planned, then scrapped, on Monday. A statement was prepared, then shelved, on Thursday. Now, Schwarzenegger's camp says that he plans to announce his decision next Wednesday in a venue befitting a celebrity campaign: NBC's "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno."
In other news, Hollywood is abuzz with rumors that Clark will announce on Letterman, Biden on Conan O'Brien and Trafficant on Court TV.
