After 17 years with Comedy Central, icon Jon Stewart has officially announced that he will be leaving The Daily Show, but not until the end of 2015. Sources predict it will be sometime during December though his last day has not yet been announced.

Jon became host of The Daily Show back in 1999 and since then has racked up 18 Emmy’s for the show. That’s quite a run!

“In my heart I know it is time for someone else to have that opportunity.” said Stewart.

It’s very mature of him to willingly pass the torch! So soak up as much of Jon Stewart you can this year folks because this may be your last dose of him for a while.
