Landrieu pitches New Orleans as ideal 'Late Show' home



New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, in a letter to CBS honcho Les Moonves, is touting the Crescent City as a good place for the network's Late Show.

David Letterman's pending retirement has prompted speculation the show may move to Los Angeles when Stephen Colbert assumes hosting duties.

As reported by CBS affiliate WWL-TV, Landrieu wrote that New Orleans "may seem like an unlikely fit," but mentioned the city's singular persona and, of course, the state of Louisiana's tax credits that would make any broadcast network's accountants keen on basing production here.

Colbert currently tapes his Comedy Central show, The Colbert Report, in New York, and has said he doesn't desire to uproot his staff or family.
