After 32 years and 6,000 episodes, David Letterman has decided he will retire at the end of his contract with CBS in 2015.

“(Les) and I … we have had this conversation in the past, and we agreed that we would work together on this circumstance and the timing of this circumstance,” Letterman said during a taping of Thursday night’s show. “And I phoned him just before the program, and I said, ‘Leslie, it’s been great, you’ve been great, and the network has been great, but I’m retiring.’ “What this means now, is that Paul and I can be married,” Letterman joked.
