Senior Black Correspondent

Larry Wilmore to Replace Colbert

The Daily Show's "Senior Black Correspondent" Larry Wilmore will replace Stephen Colbert after the Colbert Report host was picked to succeed David Letterman on CBS's Late Show. The new show will be called The Minority Report and will "provide an opportunity for underrepresented voices out there," Comedy Central president Michele Ganeless said. Wilmore appeared regularly on the Daily Show since 2006, and the idea for the new show apparently came from Jon Stewart. Brown has written for television, including shows like The Office and The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, and appeared in the movie Dinner for Schmucks.
