"Over 33 years on late-night television, David Letterman hosted 6,028 episodes of Late Night and The Late Show, and was the longest-running late-night broadcaster in American history," the Kennedy Center website noted.

"As a writer, performer, and producer, Letterman is one of the most nominated individuals in Emmy-Award history, with 52 nominations, resulting in 10 wins. Letterman is also a two-time Peabody Award winner and a Kennedy Center honoree."

Letterman, 70, retired from late-night comedy in 2015.
