When news stories fall through the cracks, we here at Colbert News Hub catch them for a post we call, In The Press.
Happy un-official start to the Summer! (for those of you living here in the U.S.) If you still have leftovers from your Memorial Day picnics, well so do we.
In this edition we go over the big stories that were breaking just before Stephen was announced as the new host of Late Show. There was a nice interview with Stephen’s wife, Evie and yet more stuff about late night TV.
Following CBS’s announcement on Thursday that Stephen Colbert would replace David Letterman as host of ‘The Late Show’ in 2015, the hosts of late night weighed in on the announcement.
In years gone by, the announcement of a new host has brought with it feuds, betrayals and late nights wars. But in recent times, the atmosphere has changed. Today’s generation of late night host addressed the news by offering their congratulations and best wishes to their newly promoted colleague.
