Colbert is leaving the Comedy Central fold to host CBS's "Late Show," replacing David Letterman, who's retiring from the show next year.

Jon Stewart's Busboy Productions will produce the new show.

On "The Minority Report," Wilmore, who serves as Senior Black Correspondent on "The Daily Show," will provide "a distinct point of view and comedic take on the day's news from a perspective largely missing in the current late night landscape," Comedy Central said. In addition to Wilmore, the show willl also feature "a diverse panel of voices currently underrepresented in comedy and television."
