It’s official! Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert has been picked to replace David Letterman when he leaves sometime next year.
Colbert signed a five year deal with CBS.
His hit fake news show “The Colbert Report” will end at the end of this year.
Colbert is 49 and brings a huge social media following, the way Jimmy Fallon did when he took over the “Tonight Show.”
