From Letterman to Luxury Real Estate

Phil Hall

He was one of the most powerful men in late night television. Today, he is a real estate broker selling luxury properties.

According to a report, Robert Morton, who served as executive producer for David Letterman’s talk shows on NBC and CBS for 14 years, has walked away from show business and is now a real estate agent with Partners Trust in Los Angeles. Although he is no stranger to home sales—he previously profited on buying and selling residential properties in wealthy communities including Malibu, Calif., and the Hamptons on New York’s Long Island—Morton saw the end of Letterman’s late night reign as the dawn of a new career for him.

“I got tired of the rat race,” he stated.” I want to be with my kids.”

Instead of booking Academy-Award winning stars and music icons, Morton now represents Beverly Hills mansions and high-ticket commercial properties including the largest vineyard in Los Angeles County. If he has any regrets of walking away from show business, he is not making it public.

“I highly recommend midlife career changes,” Morton said.
