Northwestern alumnus Seth Meyers (Communication ‘96) was named one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people on Wednesday.

Meyers, an Evanston native, is known for his role hosting “Late Night,” which he assumed in February after former “Late Night” host Jimmy Fallon moved to “The Tonight Show.” Meyers has also worked as a head writer and “Weekend Update” anchor on “Saturday Night Live.”

During his time at NU, Meyers was a part of Mee-Ow, an improv and comedy group. He has returned to the University several times since his graduation, including serving as the 2011 Homecoming Grand Marshal.

Meyers was also named Thursday the host of the 2014 Primetime Emmy Awards, which will air on Aug. 25.
