Public opinion is leaning towards Howard Stern, he's had no offers to replace Letterman

Howard Stern has responded coyly to the question of whether he would consider replacing David Letterman.

Letterman announced on Thursday (April 3) that he will step down from The Late Show next year, drawing tributes from Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel.

Stern has been a frequent guest on Letterman’s various chatshows dating back to the mid-1980s, and was asked today (April 4) if he would consider taking over The Late Show.

“I’m so busy with radio and [America’s Got Talent] and I’ve had a few other things going on, and no one has asked me,” he initially replied to E! News.

He then added: “I’ve been offered talk shows in the past, but who knows?”

Stern added that he feels “really sad” about Letterman’s decision to retire.

“[I] love Dave, his impact in show business, he has been such a part of my life,” the Sirius XM Radio host said.

He continued: “At NBC radio, I was about to get fired and then Dave had me on his show, and he said, ‘Hey I think you’re great’, and he helped me keep my job.

“My bosses noticed. They fired me later.”

There has been no announcement yet from CBS on when a replacement for Letterman will be named.
