In light of yesterday’s announcement that David Letterman will be retiring, we thought we’d share this great tribute by Tina Fey, at the Kennedy Center Honors in 2012.

And don’t forget this memorable tribute by Jimmy Kimmel from that same night.

(Kimmel actually talks about that tribute in his Fresh Air interview)

Also, Terry spoke to David Letterman in 1981 back when Fresh Air was a local show and Letterman was just getting started:

"If you do one show a year or one show every three months or one show every four months, you have an awful lot of time to realize what a failure you’ve been.  But we do kind of a baseball season: We do a show one night and we hope it’s wonderful, and if not that, we hope it’s good and we hope it isn’t bad. But even if it’s a great show or even if it’s not such a good show, we do another show the next night and we have no time, except in self analysis, to decide why it wasn’t good or even why it was very good."

It features reporters David Carr and Brian Stelter. It includes discussions over Wikileaks as well as the aftermath of the 2009 decision to cut 100 jobs from the New York Times newsroom. Andrew Rossi’s previous documentary was the story of a New York City restaurant family called “Le Cirque: A Table in Heaven.” It was shown on HBO.
