Michael Che Replaces Cecily Strong on SNL's Weekend Update

Cecily Strong is being replaced as an anchor on Saturday Night Live‘s Weekend Update segment by comedian Michael Che.

The show’s creator and executive producer Lorne Michaels confirmed the news to The New York Times, saying the switch came after trying “a number of different combinations” over the last few weeks.

Michael worked on SNL as a writer last season and he is best known for his work as a correspondent on The Daily Show. Cecily will still remain on the series as a featured player.

Michael is a strong writer and he’s really funny,” Lorne said. “It’s always difficult to make changes and make ‘Update’ different from what’s gone before.”

“It struggled to find an identity last season… because what had come before had been pretty brilliant,” Lorne added. “This is about a new era, what feels appropriate for now. That’s why we did a lot of combinations and tests, and this is kind of where we came out.”

This will be the first time in SNL history that two men sit at the anchor desk.

Kate McKinnon & Vanessa Bayer: 'SNL' Feature for 'Glamour'!

Nasim Pedrad, Aidy Bryant, Kate McKinnon, Vanessa Bayer, and Cecily Strong sit in the back seat of a limo in this new feature for Glamour‘s April 2013 issue, on newsstands now.

Here is what the ladies had to share with the mag:

Kate on who inspired her to be on the show: “Molly Shannon, Cheri Oteri, Ana Gasteyer…I had T-shirts of all their characters. I taped the sketches every week and transcribed them the next morning. It was unhealthy.”

Aidy on her audition for the show: “On my way to audition, I got caught in a rainstorm. When I walked in, I was soaked like a dog, I looked insane, and I was about to cry. Those hair and makeup ladies transformed me—by the time I auditioned, I felt so confident. I’m so grateful to them for that.”

Cecily on the end-of-show farewells: “I forced Alec Baldwin to hug me. I was like, “You have to do this.” He certainly wasn’t initiating.”
