Anna Wintour and Mark Teixeira on LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN (08/24)


[Press Release – Released by CBS]

Legendary fashion editor Anna Wintour and New York Yankees All-Star first baseman Mark Teixeira will both make their first visits to the LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN, Monday, Aug. 24 (11:35 PM-12:37 AM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Wintour, editor-in-chief of the celebrated fashion magazine Vogue and one of the most powerful figures in the fashion industry, is featured in the new documentary “The September Issue,” which gives a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the most important issue of the magazine from September 2007, which, at 840 pages, was Vogue’s biggest issue ever. The documentary opens in theaters Aug. 28.

In addition to his interview with Letterman, Teixeira will also participate in an outdoor batting demonstration during the LATE SHOW broadcast. In his first year with the Yankees, Teixeira is proving to be an all-around force for the American League East-leading team, not only at first base, but also in the batter’s box. A key ingredient to the Bronx Bombers’ success this season, he currently has a .283 batting average, recently hit his 30th home run of the season and has an impressive total of 86 runs batted in for the season, so far.

The LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN is a production of Worldwide Pants Incorporated. Barbara Gaines, Matt Roberts, Jude Brennan, Maria Pope and Rob Burnett are the executive producers.
