After 43 seasons, Saturday Night Live has finally decided to hire a black head writer. With NBC's promotions announcement Tuesday, the Huffington Post notes, Weekend Update co-host Michael Che becomes the first black head writer in the show's history.
Che and his fellow Weekend Update-r Colin Jost join current head writers Bryan Tucker and Kent Sublette, who stepped into their roles at the top of the year following the departure of Chris Kelly and Sarah Schneider. Che, a Daily Show alumnus, and Jost first began their ratings-proven news mockery back in 2014.
