Daily Show correspondent Jessica Williams has dismissed rumours that she would take over the programme's hosting duties from Jon Stewart. Stewart, who hosted the show for 17 years, recently announced his departure. His last episode is yet to be shot.
Williams, who joined Daily Show in 2012, apparently topped the list of probable replacements of Stewart, reported the New York Daily news. Former Daily Show correspondent John Oliver and current correspondent Samantha Bee were also reportedly being considered for the post.
