The president of Paramount Media Networks, Chris McCarthy, recently released an official statement and reflected on the 38-year-old comedian's ongoing legacy on the satirical news show.
"As we enter Trevor's final week, we want to thank him for his many contributions," he said, per E! News.

Trevor Noah announced his exit during the Sept. 29 episode of 'The Daily Show.'
For those who may have forgotten, Trevor Noah announced his exit to a stunned studio audience during the Sept. 29, 2022, episode of The Daily Show.
"I realized that after seven years, my time is up," Trevor revealed. "But in the most beautiful way, honestly. I've loved hosting this show. It's been one of my greatest challenges. It's been one of my greatest joys. I've loved trying to figure out how to make people laugh even when the stories are particularly s--ty on the worst days. We've laughed together, we've cried together. But after seven years, I feel like it's time."
He added that the pandemic made him realize he missed traveling and performing stand-up.
"I spent two years in my apartment not on the road," he explained. "Stand up was done. When I got back out there again, I realized there's another part of my life I want to carry on exploring. I miss learning other languages. I miss going to other countries and putting on shows. I miss just being everywhere doing everything."
