Just last night David Letterman, Bill Murray, and Lady Gaga were all taking a selife together. A humorous moment that was being buzzed about in the media, but today the tone has changed. The CBSLate Show” host announced to his audience earlier that in 2015 he plans to retire. Letterman has hosted a late-night talk show longer than anyone else, even former host Johnny Carson. At 66 years-old Letterman has dedicated 1/3 of his life to making everyone laugh at home through the best of times, and through the worst of times.

Leslie Moonves is the President of the CBS network and also shares a very deep friendship with Letterman. He spoke out on the news today saying:

“For 21 years, David Letterman has graced our network’s air in late night with wit, gravitas and brilliance unique in the history of our medium. During that time, Dave has given television audiences thousands of hours of comedic entertainment, the sharpest interviews in late night, and brilliant moments of candor and perspective around national events. He’s also managed to keep many celebrities, politicians and executives on their toes – including me.”

Letterman expressed his appreciation to everyone in an issued statement:

“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.”
