The Morning Show with David Letterman (1980)

This was David Letterman’s first talk show as host; and, as a Letterman fan, I fell in love with the former Indianapolis, Indiana local-television meteorologist during the very first year of a new decade – before Bon-Jovi made their first TV appearance on ABC Kids’ American Bandstand, there was The Morning Show with David Letterman.

NBC’s groundbreaking Monday-through-Friday information/talk show premiered in 1980 and became a failure in the weekday-morning talk show arena… to me, Letterman interviewed a diverse variety of actors, political pundits, musicians, authors, lifestyle experts and more in the years pre-Late Night with David Letterman, pre-Late Show with David Letterman. The NBC News Update segment of The Morning Show with David Letterman was anchored by the late Edwin Newman, who covered the day’s top stories in the news.
