Jon Stewart has had almost a 20-year run with The Daily Show, but he has decided to end his long haul with the famous political talk show.
While speaking to his audience during the taping today, the comedian told the crowd in a candid speech, that he has decided to “retire” from the show.

The network later confirmed the sad news, as the President said in a statement on Twitter:
“Jon has been at the heart of Comedy Central, championing and nurturing the best talent in the industry, in front of and behind the camera,” Michele Ganeless, Comedy Central’s president, said in a statement. “Through his unique voice and vision, The Daily Show has become a cultural touchstone for millions of fans and an unparalleled platform for political comedy that will endure for years to come. Jon will remain at the helm of ‘The Daily Show’ until later this year. He is a comic genius, generous with his time and talent, and will always be a part of the Comedy Central family.”
There’s no details on when he will leave his spot on the show, but it looks like he will finish up majority of the year.
We’re sad to see Jon go. How do you feel about the news?
