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.

Stephen was just announced as the successor to the Late Night show after David Letterman announced his retirement in 2015.

No date for the takeover has been officially set by CBS – stay tuned!
