Bebe has just wrapped up her third year as the host of “The New York Times” on CBS.
Bebe, who has been on the air for just over a year, took the reins of “CBS This Morning” this week, taking over for Robin Roberts.
“I am excited to be the host and the anchor of ‘CBS This Week,'” Bebe said in a statement.
“As a woman of color, I’m honored to have the opportunity to serve on CBS News.”
In a recent profile of her, the “New Yorker” described her as a “smart, funny, intelligent, charismatic, accomplished, and hardworking” woman.
She has hosted “The Daily Show” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” and has appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” “Late Night With Seth Meyers,” and “CBS Evening News.”
But Bebe was not a household name on the “Saturday Night Live” set.
She started out at “SNL” as a writer for the late-night program in 2006.
Since then, she has been one of the show’s most recognizable faces, hosting a string of comedy specials and a recurring role on “Celebrity Apprentice.”
In 2018, she won an Emmy for Best Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her work as a character actress in the hit TV show “Dancing With the Stars.”
In 2019, she was nominated for an Emmy Award for her role in “Dances With Wolves,” which won her a Golden Globe nomination.
In 2018 and 2019, Bebe also hosted the “Daily Show” show, “Jimmy Fallon Live,” “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” and was a guest host on “Jimmy’s World.”
Bebe’s first “New York Times” interview was with Esquire in February of 2019.
Bebop and the song “I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Go There” are the opening song on the album “Bebe,” which is out June 1 via The Warfield.
The album features original music from the likes of B.o.
B, DJ Mustard, and the Allman Brothers Band.
The track has been featured on the Emmy-winning series “Blackish.”
The album is available for preorder on iTunes and Spotify.
