NBC has announced that comedian Andy Richter will be reunited with Conan O'Brien on late-night TV.

According to The Associated Press, the 42 year-old Richter -- who was the sidekick on Late Night with Conan O'Brien for 7 years -- will be the announcer on The Tonight Show when O'Brien replaces Jay Leno in June. In addition, Richter will be involved in comedy skits.

O'Brien referred to Richter as a friend and one of the funniest people he knows, and also joked that he's happy about the reunion because Richter owes him $300.
