Complaining paid off for “Late Show With David Letterman,” which on Wednesday announced it has booked for Thursday’s show Sharon Reed, the WOIO-TV anchor who has been in the news recently for stripping down as part of a sweeps news story about the mass nude-in she participated in last summer.

Mr. Letterman had hoped to have Ms. Reed on his show Monday but told “Late Show” viewers that Stephen Doerr, Ms. Reed’s news director at the Raycom-owned CBS affiliate in Cleveland, refused permission, saying, “It’s just a distraction. With two days of sweeps left, we have our own business to finish.”
