Michael Che New SNL Weekend Update Co-Anchor

SNL Michael Che

Comedian Michael Che will co-anchor Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update this upcoming season, replacing anchor Cecily Strong, who will continue to appear on the show as a repertory player.

Che will join co-anchor Colin Jost, who is entering his second season in the role, NBC said.

Che joined SNL as a writer last year, but he is perhaps best known to fans for his four-month-long run this summer as a correspondent on Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show, as well as for his appearances on Seth Meyers’ Late Night and David Letterman’s Late Show.
