South African Trevor Noah will be replacing John Stewart when he finishes his time at The Daily Show. An exact timetable for Mr. Stewart’s departure has not been decided, according to the New York Times.
The New York Times:
“…after only three appearances on that Comedy Central show, Mr. Noah has gotten a huge and unexpected promotion. On Monday, Comedy Central announced that Mr. Noah would be the new host of ‘The Daily Show,’ succeeding Mr. Stewart after he steps down later this year.”
