LATE-NIGHT HOST TOLD TO WAKE UP TO REALITY

SHARE LATE-NIGHT HOST TOLD TO WAKE UP TO REALITY

Sioux City, Iowa, has one thing to say to David Letterman: Don't even think about it.

The CBS "Late Show" host has been hinting recently he might find another "home office.""We've made David Letterman," City Manager Hank Sinda said. "Obviously, he wouldn't be as big as he is without Sioux City."

No local station picked up Letterman's show when it switched from NBC to CBS last August. In mock tribute, Letterman named Sioux City his home office, the fictitious place where his Top 10 list originates.

City leaders then designated the abandoned and crumbling old City Hall building the Home Office, erecting a big sign and reserving a parking space for Letterman. Local companies sent him everything from jeans to honey.

Will Sioux City try to persuade him to stay?

"Well, gee, we'll have to think about that," Sinda said.
