Cape Town – Co-anchor of CBS This Morning and editor-at-large of O, The Oprah Magazine Gayle King wrote about why South African comedian, Trevor Noah is the perfect host of The Daily Show. 

Oprah’s bestie wrote the piece about Trevor for Variety, who included the local author on an eclectic collection of 50 people titled: New Power of New York list.  

Each person on the list was written about by someone who knows their work and/or admires them. 

The list – with its accompanying written pieces – was released online on Wednesday. 

Here’s an excerpt from Gayle’s written piece about Trevor: “But what didn’t kill Trevor Noah seems to have made him funnier. He has become a sworn enemy of the hypocritical, the phony and the power-hungry. His particular brand of fake news comes from somewhere very real, and his stinging satire is must-see TV for millions of viewers in search of a little sanity or maybe just a few laughs before calling it a night. He may have been “born a crime,” but he’s living a life of defiant achievement.”

Congrats to one of SA’s biggest exports. Everybody loves Trevor!
