Conan O’Brien set to host 2013 White House Correspondents Dinner

Conan O’Brien will be the headliner of this year’s White House Correspondents Association Dinner, it was announced Wednesday.

“Thrilled to reveal @ConanObrien has agreed to headline White House Correspondents Association’s scholarship dinner April 27 @TeamCoco,” WHCA president and Fox News Channel correspondent Ed Henry tweeted this morning.

Deadline detailed that this isn’t the late-night host’s first time toplining the DC event. In 1995, when O’Brien was the host of NBC’s Late Night, he roasted then-President Bill Clinton and others from the stage. The annual mockfest has become a magnet for Presidents and other politicians, the fourth estate, Hollywood heavyweights, and tabloid fixtures.

ABC late-night host Jimmy Kimmel headlined the dinner last year.
