Bring the Late Show to L.A.

Bring the Late Show to L.A.

Below is my letter to CBS CEO Les Moonves outlining why I think the Late Show would be best served by moving to Los Angeles. If you agree, add your name by signing the letter below. You'll then have the opportunity to contribute to the Top Ten list of why L.A. beats New York.

Dear Mr. Moonves:

As a longtime fan, I was saddened to hear of David Letterman's retirement. But as Mayor of Los Angeles, I am excited for the opportunity to encourage you to bring CBS' next late night show to our city -- the entertainment capital of the world.

I have made the entertainment industry a key priority for my administration. It's a critical component to our city's economy and identity. I created the Mayor's Office of Motion Picture and Television Production, and under the leadership of Ken Ziffren, we are aggressively seeking to encourage more production here in Los Angeles by cutting red tape, lending proactive assistance, and by furthering public policy to compete with the financial incentives offered by other states.

I look forward to speaking with you about the possibility of bringing the successor to Mr. Letterman's show to Los Angeles. 


Eric Garcetti
