David Letterman has been selected for the 2012 Kennedy Center Honors.
The ceremony by the John F. Kennedy Center For The Performing Arts will take place on the 4th December at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC. It will air on CBS later that month – on the 26th December.
Kennedy Center Chairman David M. Rubenstein says “David Letterman is one of the most influential personalities in the history of television, entertaining an entire generation of late-night viewers with his unconventional wit and charm.
