After seven years, Trevor Noah is leaving The Daily Show.

He revealed the news yesterday (September 30), telling the Daily Show audience:

I realized that, after the seven years, my time is up. Yeah. But in the most in the most beautiful way. Honestly. I've loved hosting this show. It's been one of my greatest challenges. It's been one of my greatest joys. I have loved trying to figure out how to make people laugh, even when the stories are particularly shitty on the worst days. You know, we've laughed together, we've cried together. But, after seven years, I feel like it's time.

He said that, after pandemic lockdowns kept him inside for two years, he wants to travel and focus on stand-up. See his message below.

Noah took over The Daily Show in 2015, following the departure of Jon Stewart. He said that he doesn't yet know when his last episode will be, or who will be taking over. He clarified that his departure will not be immediate.
