While there's no word what Heben will be doing at The Late Show, her work at Buzzfeed will leave big shoes to fill. From her think-piece on Kanye's ego to fun lists like The Art of Roasting and more, her work helped bring black culture into Buzzfeed's sphere of content. Not to mention Another Round is one of Buzzfeed's most popular podcasts. Earlier this year, Heben was recognized for her work when she made the 2016 class of Forbes' 30 Under 30 in Media. Surely her move could mean more diversity on The Late Show, but we won't know until she starts next month.

But some can't help but wonder what's going to happen to Another Round.

It looks like the co-host duo is already on it!
Don't fret! In the meantime, we’re scheming up all the different shapes @anotherround can take. [Portrait of us ⬇️] pic.twitter.com/j5utEKE8Ef — Heben Nigatu (@heavenrants) April 28, 2016
