David Letterman to retire

New York (CNNMoney) – Late night television legend David Letterman will retire in 2015.

Letterman announced his plan during a taping of "The Late Show" on Thursday afternoon. He said he had discussed the possibility of his retirement with CBS chief executive Les Moonves.

"He and I have had a relationship for years and years and years, and we have had this conversation in the past, and we agreed that we would work together on this circumstance and the timing of this circumstance," Letterman said. "And I phoned him just before the program, and I said 'Leslie, it's been great, you've been great, and the network has been great, but I'm retiring.'"
