We celebrate him as he moves on to his next chapter.” Said Monde Twala – Senior Vice President of Editorial and General Manager Paramount Africa and Peer Lead, BET International.

“Chris (McCarthy) has been an amazing leader and partner who has helped me realize my dream of working not just in front of the camera, but also behind the scenes, producing content which now airs across the Paramount family,” said Trevor Noah. “I’m truly excited to see what the future holds.”

The Daily Show airs Tuesdays-Fridays at 11:30 p.m. CAT on Comedy Central, DStv channel 122.
