An era of The Daily Show is coming to a close at Comedy Central. Weeks after announcing his departure from the long-running comedy show, Trevor Noah has announced that he will step away from his hosting duties after December 8, 2022.
“Trevor is an incredible talent who has left an indelible mark on The Daily Show and we’re grateful for his creative partnership over the past seven years,” Paramount Media Networks CEO Chris McCarthy stated.
“Chris [McCarthy] has been an amazing leader and partner who has helped me realize my dream of working not just in front of the camera, but also behind the scenes, producing content that now airs across the Paramount family. I’m truly excited to see what the future holds,” Noah added.
Upon Noah’s exit in early December, The Daily Show will take a five-week break during the holidays and return on January 17, 2022. At that time, it is unclear if a new host will be introduced or if one of his correspondents will fill in until a new host is determined.
