Trevor Noah to leave The Daily Show.

Trevor Noah, the host of The Daily Show, announced on Thursday that he will be leaving the satirical news program after seven years. He did not provide a date for his departure.

The 38-year-old remarked in a video posted to the show’s Twitter account, “My time is up.

After being prevented from traveling due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the South African comic claimed he missed it.

I didn’t travel for two years; I stayed in my apartment, he claimed. “I came to the realization that there is another area of my life I want to continue exploring.”

The show rose to prominence under former host Jon Stewart, who hosted the show for 16 years before leaving in 2015.

It came as a surprise to many when relatively unknown Noah was announced as Stewart’s replacement.

No hints have been given as to who will succeed Noah.

In a statement to US media, Paramount Global cable network, which owns the Comedy Central show, said, “Without a date for his departure, we’re working together on next steps.”

In his 2016 best-selling memoir, “Born a Crime,” Noah described his life in apartheid-era South Africa as the son of a black South African mother and a white Swiss-German father.

I’ve enjoyed hosting this show, Noah remarked; it’s been both one of my biggest difficulties and my greatest delights.
