Showrunner and Executive Producer, 'The Late Show with Stephen Colbert'
Executive Vice President of Special Programming, CBS
Executive Vice President of Special Programming at CBS, Chris Licht consults on various forms of content for divisions across CBS. In addition to this role, Licht serves as Executive Producer and Showrunner for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert – the most-watched show in late night television. Licht is also an Executive Producer on Stephen Colbert Presents Tooning Out the News on Paramount+. He joined The Late Show in May 2016 after five years at CBS News, most recently as Vice President of Programming for CBS News and Executive Producer of CBS’ critically acclaimed morning news program, CBS This Morning.
Under Licht’s guidance, CBS This Morning became the Network’s most successful morning newscast in more than two decades, generating CBS’ largest audience in the time period in 23 years during the fourth quarter of 2015. During Licht’s tenure as executive producer, CBS This Morning earned a prestigious Peabody Award, two News and Documentary Emmys and one Daytime Emmy. Also, the broadcast and Licht were honored with an Alfred I. DuPont-Columbia Award as part of CBS News’ division-wide coverage of the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.
Licht joined CBS News from MSNBC with a wealth of experience in television news. He was the co-creator and original executive producer of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, and was at the helm as the show garnered critical acclaim for its interviews with newsmakers and perspective on the top news stories. In addition to covering nearly every important news event in recent history, Licht led the show’s comprehensive on-location coverage of the 2008 election. Before Morning Joe, Licht was a Senior Producer and then Executive Producer of Joe Scarborough’s Scarborough Country on MSNBC.
Licht’s first book, What I Learned When I Almost Died, tells the story of what happened after a near-deadly brain hemorrhage left Chris in a hospital bed over eight long days to think about how his life had almost been cut short.
