Posted by & filed under The Daily Dose (Entertainment News).

Jimmy Kimmel will host the next White House Correspondents’ Dinner on April 28. The talk show host announced the gig with his signature sarcasm, saying, “I look forward to being a part of the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner. I love dinner.”

Caren Bohan, the president of the WHCA and a Reuters journalist, said, “Jimmy’s humor is sophisticated and edgy while appealing to a wide audience. We are thrilled that Jimmy has accepted our invitation to be the featured comedian at our annual dinner.”

The dinner is historically a grand affair that is increasingly attended by A-list celebrities. Its proceeds recognize excellence in journalism and fund scholarships and other awards for up-and-coming journalists.
