As Seth Meyers heads to the Late Night desk, NBC has named a new co-anchor for Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update. The show's head writer since 2012, Colin Jost, will join Cecily Strong at the news desk, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Both Meyers and Tina Fey were also the head writers of SNL when they anchored the segment.
Jost joined the show in 2005 and as THR points out, he has won "three WGA Awards, a Peabody Award and has been nominated for eight Emmys for his work on the series." Jost will begin co-anchoring Weekend Update on March 1, 2014.
