One of the broadcast networks’ key players in late-night talk is close to an agreement that will keep him in place through 2014, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Craig Ferguson appears poised to ink a deal with CBS to re-up as host of "The Late Late Show." The deal will move Ferguson to a bigger stage at CBS’s TV City in Los Angeles, according to a source.
News of the impending agreement comes after CBS started talks to make sure both Ferguson and David Letterman would continue at the network, according to the story. Ferguson has proved to be a valuable element in CBS’s schedule, the piece adds.
Letterman’s Worldwide Pants produces both Ferguson’s show and Letterman’s “Late Show.”
CBS declined to comment, the article notes.
