David Letterman has announced his retirement with the audience at tonight’s taping of The Late Show with David Letterman.

Before launching CBS’ Late Show in August 1993, Letterman hosted NBC’s Late Night for 11 years.

Mike Mills, bassist for REM (tonight’s musical guest), tweeted out the news this afternoon.


CBS has yet to issue a statement.

The announcement comes a month after NBC updated its late night lineup with Jimmy Fallon taking over as host of The Tonight Show from Jay Leno and Saturday Night Live’s Seth Meyers taking over Late Night.

Who would you like to see take over as host of the Late Show? How about a female host? News also comes days after Chelsea Handler announced plans that she would not renew her contract with E! when it is up later this year for her talk show, Chelsea Lately.

The Late Show with David Letterman airs weeknights at 11:35 on CBS and Omni.
