We here at the Hub have been excitedly scanning the web for news of writers (and, well, anyone) joining the staff The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and it’s nice to see some women getting the coveted spots. The newest hire is Jen Spyra, who is currently a senior writer and editorial video producer at The Onion.

According to her bio, she, like Stephen, is a Northwestern University alumna and is also a fellow improviser, having performed at iO L.A.and Chicago. She also indicates having standup comedy chops, which should come in handy. It’s great to see all these super smart improvisery people joining the staff! It makes a fan pumped up for the Colbert-related times to come.
