LOS ANGELES - Comedy Central says that Jon Stewart will leave "The Daily Show" as host later this year.

His departure was announced by Comedy Central President Michele Ganeless after Stewart broke the news to the audience at Tuesday's taping in New York.

Stewart took over the show in 1999. He took a several months-long hiatus in 2013 to direct "Rosewater," a film about an Iranian-born journalist who was imprisoned for 118 days in Tehran and accused of being a spy.

The network lost another major host last year when Stephen Colbert left to take over David Letterman's late night show on CBS.
