In August, 2007, Kerwin and former show producer Rob Baker met with NBC's head of late night and prime time programming Rick Ludwin to campaign for the position then to be vacated by Conan O'Brien in 2009 as he left NBC's "Late Night" to host The Tonight Show. The position was eventually given to Jimmy Fallon.[2]
