Alan Kalter, who served as the longtime announcer for The Late Show With David Letterman, has died at 78.
Rabbi Joshua Hammerman of Temple Beth El in Stamford, Conn., confirms to EW that Kalter died at Stamford Hospital beside his wife Peggy and his daughters Lauren Hass and Diana Binger.
“When our announcer of 15 years Bill Wendell retired, producer Robert Morton came to my office with an audiotape containing auditions for several announcers. Alan's was the first and only voice we listened to. We knew he would be our choice,” David Letterman said in a statement.
