Late Show host, Jimmy Fallon, took to his late-night desk to pay homage to David Letterman.

David announced earlier in the week that he will be retiring at the end of next year.

“The man who owns this network, Leslie Moonves, he and I have had a relationship for years and years and years, and 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. 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,’” Letterman said.
