‘The Daily Show’ set donated to Newseum
WASHINGTON — The set of “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” will be donated to the Newseum after Stewart’s final episode.
Newseum spokesman Jonathan Thompson said in a news release that the museum of journalism will acquire the set, including the desk, globe and props, after Stewart hosts his final episode Thursday night.
The set will become part of the Newseum’s collection for future display.
Cathy Trost, senior vice president of exhibits and programs at the Newseum, says Stewart was a voice for a strong and free press.
Stewart has hosted the program on Comedy Central since 1999.
