Berklee honors Page

BOSTON

Former Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page has been honored with a doctoral degree from the Berklee College of Music in Boston.

Page delivered the commencement address Saturday to nearly 900 graduates of the private college known for its music program, telling them that their love of music will sustain them through the unexpected twists and turns that lie ahead.

The school also presented honorary doctorates to Motown and R&B songwriter Valerie Simpson, jazz pianist and educator Geri Allen and American Music Program youth jazz orchestra founder Thara Memory.

Larry Wilmore to replace Colbert

NEW YORK

Writer-comic Larry Wilmore of “The Daily Show” has earned Stephen Colbert’s coveted Comedy Central time slot after Jon Stewart each night.

Comedy Central said Friday that Wilmore will host “The Minority Report” at 11:30 each weeknight, starting in January.

Wilmore, who’s black, will add a different perspective to a late-night landscape dominated by white men.

Colbert, a fellow “Daily Show” alumnus who was rewarded with his own show a decade ago, is wrapping “The Colbert Report” at the end of this year and will take over for David Letterman at CBS’ “Late Show” next year.
