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.

There is no set departure date for Letterman. Many celebrities took to Twitter after Letterman’s big announcement.

President Obama tweeted: There are more than 10 reasons will be missed.

Jimmy Kimmel tweeted: David @Letterman is the best there is and ever was.

Bill Crystal tweeted: Just had great time with@letterman. On Friday. No one like him.

The rumors have already began to whirl in about Letterman’s possible replacements – from Chelsea Handler, Conan O’Brian to Tina Fey and Jerry Seinfield. There’s no doubt that viewers will continue to watch Letterman’s legacy.
