Jon Stewart leaving Comedy Central’s ‘The Daily Show’

Comedian Jon Stewart, famed for his biting television satire of politicians and the media, will leave his job as host of Comedy Central’s parody newscast “The Daily Show” later this year, he told his studio audience at the end of Tuesday night’s episode. Stewart, 52, who has starred on the show since 1999, said he had no specific plans for his next career move, but was thankful for the opportunity to host the program. “It’s been an absolute privilege,” said an emotional Stewart. “It’s been the honor of my professional life, and I thank you for watching it, for hate-watching it, whatever reason you are tuning in for.”
