Michael Che, best known for his latest gig as a correspondent on The Daily Show, will be replacing Cecily Strong at the "Weekend Update" desk on Saturday Night Live.

Michael Che To Anchor 'Weekend Update'

Che will co-anchor "Weekend Update" with Saturday Night Live writer Colin Jost for the upcoming 40th season of the sketch show, reported Deadline. While Strong will no longer be at the "Weekend Update" desk, she will remain on SNL as a repertory player. Strong previously did "Weekend Update" with Seth Meyers, who now hosts The Late Show.

Che worked as a writer on SNL’s 39th season, but left the NBC show to work as a correspondent on John Stewart’s The Daily Show. In order to take the new SNL job, he had to be let out of his Daily Show contract, which he’s grateful to the show for allowing.

Not everything about the career boost has been completely positive for Che, who admitted Tinder has gotten a bit awkward with his newfound fame.

Saturday Night Live will premiere its 40th season on Sept. 27 with host Chris Pratt and musical guest Ariana Grande.
