INDIANAPOLIS — David Letterman is closing out his career on what’s being proclaimed as David Letterman Day in his hometown.

Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard has issued a proclamation declaring Wednesday to be David Letterman Day. CBS will air the final episode of the CBS’ “Late Show” Wednesday night.

The proclamation issued Tuesday notes Letterman graduated from Broad Ripple High School and Ball State University in nearby Muncie, worked as a local television weatherman and is a co-owner of the Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing IndyCar team.

It also mentions Letterman once worked as a bagger at the now closed Atlas Supermarket and that the “Stupid Human Tricks” segment on the “Late Show” once featured future Indiana Pacers Coach Frank Vogel brushing his teeth with a spinning basketball on the end of his toothbrush.
