On air Thursday, Trevor Noah shocked the studio audience when he announced that he will be stepping down as the host of “The Daily Show”. Noah has been hosting the show for the last seven years. Noah expressed his gratitude for working for “The Daily Show” as that was the seventh anniversary of him taking over after Jon Stewart.

Neither Comedy Central, nor Noah, announced when his final appearance on the show will be. Noah has commented that hosting has been one of his biggest challenges, but greatest joys. Noah reminisced on his journey and how much the show has changed him over the last 7 years. Many fans will miss the comedian, but are excited for the new chapter ahead.
