According to The AV Club, who was reporting on tweets from folks who were present, Jon Stewart announced at a recent taping of the Daily Show that he would be retiring from the program. No other details are available at this time, and it's unknown when he will be leaving, who his replacement would be, and what Stewart's next steps would be. After Rosewater, we hope he goes on to direct more films.
We at the Ace of Geeks would like to thank Jon Stewart for being the voice of sanity in a world of twenty four hour news coverage. Without his voice, there were times that many of us on staff would not have understood the crises that faced our modern world - and without him, we certainly wouldn't have been able to laugh at them. Thank you, Jon, and good luck in wherever life takes you next.
UPDATE: Comedy Central have released a statement confirming Stewart's retirement. No dates are given other than "later this year."
