Late Night Icon, David Letterman is Retiring, And I Am Sad
Late night Icon David Letterman announced that he will be retiring sometime in 2015 after over 30 years doing "Late Night with David Letterman" I for one am sad, as Dave was an inspiration in my early days on the radio. I was going to college when Dave first started on TV. I though he was brilliantly funny and was inspired that he started as a radio DJ in Indiana, then became a television weatherman until he got fired for saying hail was falling, the size of canned hams, which caused widespread panic.
I will miss his very funny interviews too. Check out some of those interviews below.
