David Letterman Announces 2015 Retirement

David Letterman announced Thursday his intention to retire from the Late Show in 2015 when his contract was set to expire.

Letterman had been with CBS for 21 years.

Celebrities immediately reacted to the announcement.

“If a late night host hasn’t stolen something from Dave, you’re doing it wrong,” Arsenio Hall of the The Arsenio Hall Show said.

Comments also included a tweet from President Barack Obama.
