Jon Stewart's Replacement as 'Daily Show' Host Finally Announced
After months of rampant speculation, the results are in. The New York Times reported this morning that 31-year-old South African comedian Trevor Noah will take the reins at the Daily Show when host Jon Stewart retires later this year. Noah, who joined the show as a contributor in December 2014, retweeted the link to the Times story as confirmation of the news.
He has made only three appearances on the show since joining the staff, according to BuzzFeed News, making him a much less likely contributor than other potential candidates to replace Stewart, including Jessica Williams. Clips from Noah's appearances are posted below.
