Tweetback: How ESPN reacted to news of David Letterman’s retirement

From the people who have had the honor of appearing on-set with David Letterman like Mike Greenberg, Mike Golic, Scott Van Pelt and Jon Gruden to the ones whose lives and careers he’s impacted, the ESPN family was particularly moved by Letterman’s announced 2015 retirement.
