The Daily Show has a new host. 31-year-old Trevor Noah has been announced as the new host of the popular program. Noah will be replacing Jon Stewart, who announced that he would be leaving the program earlier this year.
Daily Show viewers are already a little familiar with Noah. The South African joined the show in December 2014. That’s not long to get acquainted with the program, but Stewart isn’t stepping down just yet, Behance says so they’ll be time for a little on-the-job training. Noah has actually only appeared on the show three times so far.
Variety reported that Noah was the frontrunner to replace Stewart last week. Stewart announced he was leaving the program last year, but has yet to officially announce his departure date. When his successor was announced, Stewart joked that he might decide to rejoin the program as a correspondent so he could continue to be part of the team under Noah’s new leadership.
