The Daily Show contributor Trevor Noah will replace Jon Stewart as host of the show.
The 31-year-old said in a statement, “It’s an honor to follow Jon Stewart. He and the team at The Daily Show have created an incredible show whose impact is felt all over the world. In my brief time with the show they’ve made me feel so welcome. I’m excited to get started and work with such a fantastic group of people.”
Jon also reacted to the news saying, “I’m thrilled for the show and for Trevor. He’s a tremendous comic and talent that we’ve loved working with…In fact, I may rejoin as a correspondent just to be a part of it!!!”
No timeline has been announced for Jon’s departure since he first broke the news last month.
