Jon Stewart Is Leaving The Daily Show

After nearly 17 years, Jon Stewart will be leaving his post as the host of The Daily Show. Comedy Central confirmed the news in a tweet, thanking Stewart for being at the helm of the "cultural touchstone" that the nightly news show has become. Stewart announced the news at a taping of the show on Tuesday, and the statement from Comedy Central makes it official. Stewart took time off last year to film his first movie as a director, Rosewater, so it's possible he wants to start directing full-time. According to a statement from Michele Ganeless, the network's president, Stewart will remain as the host "until later this year." Who will replace him? Until we get an answer, take a look at Comedy Central's public statement below.
