Luminary Conducts Rare Interview with The Late Show's David Letterman

IU College of Arts and Sciences Luminary Eric Deggans speaks with a television icon.

In May 2015, one of our Luminaries had the extraordinary opportunity to interview CBS’ “The Late Show” host David Letterman as he prepared to say goodbye for the final time.

Eric Deggans (BA '90, Journalism and Political Science) caught up with Letterman on NPR Radio to reflect on Letterman’s lasting legacy on media. Letterman’s retirement ended his tenure as TV’s longest-serving late-night host.

Having only participated in a handful of interviews in anticipation of his retirement, Letterman’s interview with Deggans is one you don’t want to miss.
