Sheryl Zelikson to Leave the ‘Late Show with Stephen Colbert’

Twenty years after starting out at the ‘Late Show’ under David Letterman, Billboard reports that Sheryl Zelikson will be leaving her role as the ‘Late Show with Stephen Colberts’ senior music producer.

A spokesman person for the show stated that, “this was a very amicable decision between Sheryl and the show. We wish her great things for the future“.

In a farewell message to colleagues, Zelikson noted that “she’d started as a mailroom clerk and looked forward to continuing to champion great talent […] Artists have been discovered, careers made, and it has been a tremendous privilege to have been an integral part of the process for over two decades.

The show is currently seeking a new music booker with the “ability to discover new talent, book big names,” and “bring big ideas for innovative ways to produce music for both broadcast and digital,” to join the talent booking department.”

  • Ain’t that a bitch

    What you are doing is offensive, very hurtful the Italian Americans, embarrassing, and extremely distasteful. First time I watched your show tonight and I see you have just become a total hater. What you are doing is hurting our country. No respect to hopefully get ratings. STOP IT, be real fare and funny and not at the cost of other ethnicities. That’s was cruel and hurtful to watch.
