Andy Richter to be Conan O'Brien's Tonight Show Sidekick

This pleases me:

Mr. Richter, who served as Mr. O’Brien’s sidekick during the first eight years of “Late Night With Conan O’Brien” on NBC, is returning as the announcer for “Tonight” when Mr. O’Brien takes over in June. Mr. Richter, who will also perform in sketches on “Tonight,” left “Late Night” in 2000 to pursue acting and starred in several network comedy series, including “Andy Barker, P.I.,” which was produced by Mr. O’Brien’s company.

Richter played a big role in righting O'Brien's ship on Late Night, and it seems right that he'll be joining Conan on the Tonight Show.
