Guys I was kidding about the ‘new old guy’ part! My bad.. but as I was saying 49 year-old Stephen Colbert, host of “The Colbert Report” on Comedy Central will secure the position of host when long-running host David Letterman steps down in 2015. CBS has confirmed a five year deal with Colbert.
“Stephen Colbert is one of the most inventive and respected forces on television,” CBS chairman Les Moonves said. “David Letterman’s legacy and accomplishments are an incredible source of pride for all of us here, and today’s announcement speaks to our commitment of upholding what he established for CBS in late night.”
Wellst, Letterman have fun rollin’ around in your dough and Colbert do ya thang!
