LOS ANGELES (AP) — NBC says a correspondent on Jon Stewart’s “The Daily Show” is joining “Saturday Night Live.”

Comedian Michael Che will handle “Weekend Update” duties with Colin Jost during the upcoming 40th season of “SNL,” the network said Thursday.

Che, who wrote for “SNL” last season, had joined Stewart’s Comedy Central show earlier this year. In an August episode focused on the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, Missouri, Che appeared as a reporter trying to find a safe place in America for a black man.

Che is replacing Cecily Strong on the “Weekend Update” desk. Strong will stay with “SNL” as a cast member, NBC said.

“Saturday Night Live” returns for its new season Sept. 27, with host Chris Pratt and musical guest Ariana Grande.
