Late-night TV show hosts are opening up their wallets to help their employees amid the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
CBS only covered eight weeks of salary for production employees when The Late Late Show shut down on March 15 over coronavirus concerns, according to Variety, who first reported the news. Corden, 41, reportedly told some of his staff last week that they would be furloughed as of May 4 and that he would covering their pay moving forward.
The outlet estimates that the move will cost Corden at least mid-five figures a week.
Though The Late Late Show returned on April 14 with Corden hosting from his garage in his Los Angeles home, the host announced on Wednesday that he will not be able to film new episodes after recently undergoing minor surgery on his eye.
