David Letterman, 'CBS World News Roundup' Fan
June 11, 2010 at 4:30 AM (PT)
DAVID LETTERMAN told his audience WEDNESDAY that he listens to the CBS WORLD NEWS ROUNDUP while taking his son HARRY to kindergarten and likes to show off to his son by predicting when the anchor says "time on the ROUNDUP, 8 past the hour." But he noted that a change in anchors has led to the phrase on occasion being shortened or altered, leading to a comic phone conversation with ROUNDUP anchor STEVE KATHEN about the changes.
When LETTERMAN asked KATHEN "what would it take to get you to do the whole thing?," KATHEN told him he'd do it for free.
On THURSDAY's ROUNDUP, KATHEN played a clip of his conversation with LETTERMAN and then dedicated a full "time on the ROUNDUP, 8 past the hour" to the "LATE SHOW" host.
