Letterman has been hosting his show since he left NBC in 1993. His announcement comes months after Jimmy Fallon replaced Jay Leno on “The Tonight Show” earlier this year.
Letterman announced his plan during a taping of “The Late Show” on Thursday afternoon. CBS (Fortune 500) is expected to issue a statement sometime before the program is broadcast Thursday night.,
A CBS spokesman declined to comment. Letterman’s announcement initially leaked out when a performer, Mike Mills, who was at the taping of “The Late Show” tweeted out the news. “Dave just announced his retirement,” Mills wrote.
What exactly Letterman says about his decision on “The Late Show” is not yet known.

2. St. Louis Blues, 1929 RKO/Sack Amusements FREE Screening (one of several shorts), Feb. 26th, 7:30pm, Rock Hall - This sixteen-minute short film shot in Astoria, Queens, New York City, is blues singer Bessie Smith’s only screen role. In it, she plays a long-suffering wife of an uncaring gambler. Co-produced by W.C. Handy, author of the title song, the film also features Isabelle Washington (sister of actress Fredi Washington) who plays the “other woman.” Pianist James P. Johnson and the Hall Johnson Choir accompanied Smith and added to the overwhelming pathos of her singing, making this dramatized interpretation of the blues a true film classic.2 of 6
