It’s the end of an era at CBS – and for late night television. Davis Letterman is retiring. In a statement from his production company, Worldwide Pants, Lettermean said, ‘…it’s been great, but I’m retiring.’
For me, Letterman is one of the two all-time great interviewers from late night (the other being the late Tom Snyder of NBC’s The tomorrow Show and CBS’ The Late Late Show). While he won plaudits for his offbeat humor, Letterman never shied away from the ‘What the hell was that?’ questions, and that made him the most unpredictable host in late night.
The Worldwide Pants press release and a statement from CBS’ head, Les Moonves, follow the jump.
