“We’re proud to be the first duo hosting the Emmys since Jenna Elfman and David Hyde Pierce, and somehow that’s a real fact,” said Jost and Che in a joint statement.
Elfman and Pierce hosted the Emmys in 1999.
The Emmys last had multiple hosts in 2008, when duties were split between Tom Bergeron, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel, Jeff Probst and Ryan Seacrest. The ceremony aired on ABC that year.
Che and Jost take over hosting from Stephen Colbert, who hosted last year when the program aired on CBS.
Nominations for the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards will be announced Thursday, July 12.
The Emmys will air on Monday, September 17 on NBC.
