LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Comedian Jon Stewart will leave as the host of Comedy Central's satirical show "The Daily Show" later this year, the network said in a statement on Tuesday.

Stewart's departure comes after Stephen Colbert left his "Colbert Report" fake news show in December. A replacement has not yet been named.
