Jimmy Kimmel is to host the 2012 White House Correspondents' dinner.

The annual gathering of the Washington press corps has traditionally featured comedians and politicians trading jokes about US leaders.

The Jimmy Kimmel Live host teased that he is particularly excited about the menu for the gala.

Kimmel said in a statement: "I look forward to being a part of the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner. I love dinner."

The late-night presenter follows in the footsteps of previous hosts Seth Meyers, Jay Leno, Stephen Colbert and Rich Little.

The 98th annual White House Correspondents' dinner will be held on April 28, with proceeds from the event benefiting journalism education.
