Trevor Noah, the South African anchor of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” is allegedly quitting the network.
Trevor made the announcement, telling the audience his 7-year tenure was ending on his 7th anniversary on the show.
A Comedy Central source said his decision has to do with his schedule, which is hardcore crazy and is just too much of a grind for him to do a daily show.
Comedy Central says:
“We are grateful to Trevor for our amazing partnership over the past seven years. As we look ahead, we’re excited for the next chapter in the 25+ year history of ‘The Daily Show.'”
It’s unclear when Trevor will leave the show, but he and the CC team are working on “a timeline for his departure.”
Trevor has hosted “The Daily Show” since 2015, taking over for long-time host Jon Stewart on the satirical news program.
During his time as host, Trevor won a Primetime Emmy Award, nominated for many other awards.
He also hosted the Grammy Awards and the White House Correspondents Dinner, appeared in movies, and produced much content.
In 2017, Trevor extended his contract with Comedy Central through 2022, and now he’s leaving.
