A new guy brings the news on 'Saturday Night Live'

Colin Jost Performs At Seminole Casino Coconut Creek
NEW YORK (AP) - A new guy was presiding at the "Weekend Update" news desk on "Saturday Night Live."

Colin Jost (johst), the NBC comedy show's head writer, made his first appearance on the spoof newscast, seated alongside co-anchor Cecily Strong.

The baby-faced, anchor-handsome Jost began by voicing gratitude for his new on-air role. He called it "a dream come true."

Among his news items was the 50th anniversary of Pop-Tarts, which he described as "the official breakfast of kids whose parents are in way over their heads."

He succeeds longtime "Update" anchor Seth Meyers, who exited a month ago and last week debuted as host of the network's "Late Night."

Jost joined the "SNL" writing staff in 2005. He wrote and appears in the upcoming film "Staten Island Summer."
