NEW YORK (WISH) - Before making his way over to Radio City Music Hall for the 2012 NFL Draft, new Colts quarterback Andrew Luck stopped by the “Late Show with David Letterman.” 24-Hour News 8’s cameras were there as Luck made his way into the Ed Sullivan Theater and were granted special behind-the-scenes access before his appearance.
Sports Director Anthony Calhoun caught up with Luck’s father, Oliver, during the taping.
"His schedule's been crazy up here the last day or two, so to carve out the time and be able to do this shortly before the draft is pretty cool,” Oliver Luck said. “I know Andrew's been looking forward to it."
He went on to say that draft day is truly a special moment for the Luck family.
"He's excited and we're excited. There's not much drama like there is for most of the draft-eligible players who really don't know where they're going to be living for the next decade or two in some cases, but it is a nice moment and we're all very happy for him. And I think he'll be glad when it's over and he can just get to his future home."
Letterman presented Luck with a special gift during their interview. The “Late Show” airs on WISH-TV immediately following 24-Hour News 8 at 11 p.m.
