Big news on the SNL front. It was just announced that Midwestern girl and Second City alum Cecily Strong will be the new co-host of Weekend Update.
Cecily was born in Springfield and raised in Oak Park, Illinois. Her only negative is that she is a White Sox fan (even though we don’t get paid, MWTVG is an unofficial sponsor of the Chicago Cubs).
The current Weekend Update host, Seth Meyers, will be leaving the show in February to host his own late night show. No word on whether Cecily will host Weekend Update solo or not.
The upcoming season of SNL will be it’s 38th which is simply amazing.
