When the call came, Michele Ganeless didn’t want to pick up the phone. Stephen Colbert was on the line, and the Comedy Central president had a feeling it was bad news. “There was a moment of, ‘I don’t know that I want to have this conversation because I’m afraid of what it’s going to be,’” she recalls. Sure enough, the star of the network’s longtime hit The Colbert Report told her he was leaving to take David Letterman’s coveted late-night slot on CBS. After hearing the news, “there was maybe a moment of perspiration,” she says with a laugh. Colbert’s departure will be a big test for Ganeless, who has worked at Comedy Central on and off since the channel’s birth in the early ’90s and was appointed president in 2007. In May, she announced Colbert’s replacement: Daily Show correspondent Larry Wilmore, whose satirical news-commentary show, The Minority Report With Larry Wilmore, will debut early next year.
