Jon Stewart Joining 9/11 Memorial Foundation Board

Comedian and host of “The Daily Show” Jon Stewart is set to join the foundation building the Sept. 11 memorial in New York City.

Stewart will be appointed to the National Sept. 11 Memorial & Museum board at their Thursday afternoon meeting.

The comedian — who The New York Times likened to Edward R. Murrow – used his show to support a federal bill that provides aid to 9/11 first responders.
