He’s retiring after 32 years hosting one of the best late night talk shows.. I had the awesome experience several years ago to catch a taping and it was amazing! The guests that night were John Goodman and up and coming singer Robyn.
He’s been involved in many many projects including creating the Letterman Foundation for Courtesy and Grooming which he has donated millions of dollars through to many other non-profits and charities.
There have been many many stories about him… one I remember the most was when he was stalked by Margaret Ray, who suffered from schizophrenia…he always made fun of her on his show (although never saying her name), until she committed suicide…”This is a sad ending to a confused life” said a spokesman for him.
It will definitely be a sad day when he signs off and I don’t think there are many others who will ever be able to take his place…
