Current The Late Show host David Letterman has released a statement about his successor Stephen Colbert.

Stephen has always been a real friend to me. I’m very excited for him, and I’m flattered that CBS chose him. I also happen to know they wanted another guy with glasses,” the 66-year-old television personality said in a statement.
