Jon Stewart will host the 65th Annual George Foster Peabody Awards ceremony Monday, June 5 at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York.

The host of Comedy Central's The Daily Show with Jon Stewart -- who hosted the Academy Awards earlier this month -- has won two Peabodys for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart: Indecision 2000 and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart: Indecision 2004.

The Peabody Awards -- established in 1940 and administered by the University of Georgia's Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication -- recognize distinguished achievement and meritorious public service by stations, networks, producing organizations and individuals.
