Trevor Noah has announced that he will be stepping down as The Daily Show host.
Through a video statement shared on Twitter, Noah, who had been the host of the satirical program for seven years, said his time was up but was grateful for the experience.
It’s been wild. I remember when we first started and so many people didn’t believe in us. It was a crazy bet to make. What a journey it has been,
I found myself thinking throughout the time of everything we’ve gone through. The Trump presidency, the pandemic, just the journey, more pandemic and I realize that after the seven years, my time is up,
Trevor took over from Jon Stewart in 2015. He was, at the time, relatively unknown in the US but grew to be one of the most-loved faces on TV globally.
On why the exit, he hinted only on his desire to be out there, probably travel.
I spent two years in my apartment, not on the road, and when I got back out there, I realized there’s another part of my life out there that I want to carry on exploring, I miss learning other languages. I miss going to other countries and putting on shows,”Noah Trevor
