The “Colbert Report” host signs a five-year deal with CBS

CBS has named Stephen Colbert its new host of the “Late Show,” effective when David Letterman retires.

Colbert inked a five-year deal with CBS, according to the network. Specific creative elements, as well as the producers and the location for the Colbert-hosted ”Late Show,” will be determined and announced at a later date, CBS said.

Letterman, who has sat behind the “Late Show” desk for 21 years, announced his pending 2015 retirement on April 3. The long-tenured late night personality mentioned 2015 as his exit year, though no more specific timeframe has been targeted at this point.

This news comes just days after Colbert offended Asian-Americans with a racist tweet.
