The White House Correspondents’ Association says the “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” host will be the featured comedian at its 98th annual dinner next year.

Association president Caren Bohan said Tuesday that the 43-year-old entertainer was chosen because his “humor is sophisticated and edgy while appealing to a wide audience.”
