Larry Wilmore, well known as being the “Senior Black Correspondent” on “The Daily Show,” will replace Stephen Colbert in 2015 on Comedy Central. Colbert, host of “The Colbert Report,” will be succeeding David Letterman on CBS’s “Late Show.”
Replacing “The Colbert Report” will be “The Minority Report”. According to Comedy Central president Michele Ganeless, it will “provide an opportunity for underrepresented voices out there.”
Wilmore has been involved in many projects over the years, including co-creation of “The PJs” with Eddie Murphy, as well as “The Bernie Mac Show.”
“I’m beyond excited to have this chance to continue my relationships with Comedy Central and the brilliant Jon Stewart,” said Wilmore. Together, Stewart and Wilmore will serve as executive producers of the show.
