Statement from Governor Andrew M. Cuomo About the Late Show Staying in NY
Statement from Governor Andrew M. Cuomo urging that CBS continue the "Late Show's" history of filming in New York's own legendary Ed Sullivan Theater.
Albany, NY - April 10, 2014 - With East Coast based host Stephen Colbert taking the reins of the “Late Show,” it’s clear we should keep the show where it belongs – here in New York. I am calling CBS President and Chief Executive Officer Les Moonves and urging that CBS continue the "Late Show's" history of filming in New York's own legendary Ed Sullivan Theater. Our state is a top destination for entertainment businesses to thrive and grow, creating jobs and economic opportunities for communities across the State, and late night programs are a major part of that success. We must ensure that the "Late Show's" long and proud history of making the nation laugh from New York continues for years to come."
