Discovery Channel has found their Chief Shark Officer.

Back in January, the network sent out an amusing job ad asking for a celebrity interested in applying for the position. “Must enjoy exotic, waterfront locations, buff bodies in bathing suits and having the bejesus scared out of you,” said the job posting. “Looking delicious in a wetsuit is a plus. Sense of humor required.”

Seems that last part intrigued Andy Samberg, as the comedian has just been announced as the host of the 24th annual Shark Week. “Everyone loves Shark Week. It’s the Bill Cosby of week-long television blocks dedicated to sea animals,” the “Saturday Night Live” funnyman said in a statement.

Discovery will use the event, watched by over 31 million people last year, to promote conservation of shark species. According to a recent article over on OurAmazingPlanet.com, as many as one-third of the world’s sharks and other cartilaginous fishes are threatened, and shark numbers along the United States eastern seaboard have plummeted, some species by as much as 90 percent.

Look for Shark Week to hit sometime this summer.
