On Wednesday, April 26th CBS’s The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, in conjunction with ACP, hosted an exciting opportunity for veterans! This event provided a select group of veterans interested in television production and entertainment a glimpse into how a popular live-to-tape program on network television operates as well as an opportunity to grow their network of professionals in the industry.
The afternoon began with a Q&A session with The Late Show staff members who were excited to share their insights and experiences on getting a start in the industry followed by a behind-the-scenes tour of The Late Show’s stage and control room. The veterans then experienced the show’s taping as part of the live studio audience. After taping, the veterans had the opportunity to have a brief meet & greet with Stephen Colbert followed by a Q&A with The Late Show’s Executive Producer, Chris Licht.
