"Brooklyn native" Jimmy Kimmel to broadcast from Brooklyn, to coincide with NBA season

Atlantic Yards Report

"Late-night comedian and Brooklyn native Jimmy Kimmel is taking his show on the road to broadcast from his home borough this fall," reported the Daily News today.

"Jimmy Kimmel is heading home," said the Hollywood Reporter.

The Brooklyn Paper did a whole Q&A, far more space than it devoted to the documentary film Battle for Brooklyn.

Well, Kimmel's family moved from Mill Basin to Las Vegas when he was nine. But just like announcer David Diamante, who moved to Brooklyn at age 30, is described as a fifth-generation Brooklynite, so too can Kimmel be claimed.
