SNL's Cecily Strong to host Correspondents' dinner

Posted: Updated:
 (NBC) Live from Washington, D.C., it's Cecily Strong — well, it will be on April 25.  The White House Correspondents' Association has revealed the "SNL" cast member will be the featured entertainer at the group's annual dinner in 2015.

"Her political humor is sly and edgy, and it comes with a Chicago accent," WHCA president Christi Parsons said of the 30-year-old comedian in a press release. 

Strong is the daughter of Bill Strong, a former Associated Press bureau chief.

The dinner, a yearly tradition since 1920, serves as a humor-packed roast of both politicians and the press corps and is typically attended by the president and vice president.

Strong will be just the fourth woman to serve as a solo host of the event since it began.
