Colin Jost to host Emmys Awards, make Staten Island even more proud

SNL’s ‘Weekend Update’ Anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che

Michael Che and Colin Jost, "Weekeund Update" anchors on "Saturday Night Live", will host the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards on NBC in September.

The duo will share emcee duties at the awards ceremony honoring TV excellence starting live at 8 p.m. September 17. They will be joined by their "SNL" boss Lorne Michaels, who will executive produce the awards-show telecast.

In addition to Che and Jost, the awards ceremony will also feature "surprise appearances by other cast members of Saturday Night Live". The comedy co-anchors, who have helmed the "Weekend Update" desk since 2014, shared their excitement about landing the coveted hosting gig in a joint statement.

With Jost and Che, NBC continues the tradition of tapping its late-night hosts as Emmy emcees.

Ex-CIA chief confirmed as Trump's state secretary
Heidi Heitkamp, a Democrat representing North Dakota, was the first to announce she meant to confirm Pompeo. President Donald Trump fired his first Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in a Twitter message in March.

"We're proud of our deep comedy roster at NBC", said Paul Telegdy, president of NBC Entertainment's Alternative and Reality Group, per NBC's statement. A four-time WGA Award victor and recipient of a Peabody Award, Jost started at SNL as a writer in 2005.

The pair were named as co-head writers of Saturday Night Live past year. The hosting choice here is somewhat surprising, although not entirely, given how well Saturday Night Live performed in last year's Emmys, and in the ratings in general.

Nominations for the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards will be announced Thursday, July 12 from the Television Academy's Wolf Theatre at the Saban Media Center.
