US latenight talk show host David Letterman has announced that he will be retiring in 2015.
The 67 year-old veteran stunned television audiences during a taping of his long-running ‘The Late Show’ saying that “I just want to reiterate my thanks for the support from the network, all of the people who have worked here, all of the people in the theater, all the people on the staff, everybody at home, thank you very much. What this means now, is that Paul and I can be married.”
His decision is the latest high-profile ‘shock’ in television after another legend Jay Leno’s depature from ‘The Tonight Show’. Twitter went crazy (as usual) with compliments for the man of the hour, all saluting the great work he’s done over the years.
I can only salute the great for his great sense of humour and witty banter. You rock David!
