NEW ORLEANS SAINTS QUARTERBACK DREW BREES TO VISIT CBS’s “LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN,” TUESDAY, JUNE 26

CHEAT TWEET:  Touchdown! @Saints QB @drewbrees 2 visit @late_show Tuesday, 6/26, 11:35 pm ET/PT! http://bit.ly/MlF3cM    

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees will visit the LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN, Tuesday, June 26 (11:35 PM-12:37 AM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

This will be Brees’ third appearance on the LATE SHOW.  He last visited the broadcast April 22, 2010, when he presented the Top Ten List on the show after being named the cover athlete for the “Madden NFL 10” video game.  Also, he appeared earlier that year on Feb. 8 2010, the day after the New Orleans Saints won Super Bowl XLIV and Brees was named Super Bowl MVP.

Brees is working with the program PACE (Protecting Athletes through Concussion Education), which works with ImPACT, the most widely-used and scientifically validated computerized concussion evaluation system. Each year, 3.8 million recreational and sports-related concussions occur in the United States, and many athletes do not understand the potentially dangerous long-term effects concussions can have if not treated properly.  Through PACE, up to one million young athletes throughout more than 3,300 middle and high schools nationwide will receive their first-year ImPACT test program and concussion education for free.  Those interested can visit www.DicksSportingGoods.com/PACE to sign up for this free testing.

Also visiting the LATE SHOW on Tuesday, June 26 are actor Andrew Garfield, star of the new film “The Amazing Spider-Man,” and musical guests Maroon 5.

The LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN is a production of Worldwide Pants Incorporated.  Barbara Gaines, Matt Roberts, Jude Brennan, Maria Pope, Eric Stangel, Justin Stangel and Rob Burnett are the executive producers.

 

RATING: TV-PG (Rating may change on day of broadcast due to specific subject matter.)
