In the wake of the David Letterman scandal, late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, 41, who recently ended his long-time relationship with comedian Sarah Silverman, is now dating longtime staffer and current co-head writer Molly McNearney.
Kimmel’s representative has confirmed to PEOPLE that he has been dating McNearney, 31, for several months.
“After Jimmy and Sarah broke up, Molly and Jimmy both found themselves single, and they clicked,” a source told PEOPLE. “They’re really happy together.” However, “during work hours, they keep things professional.”
McNearney, joined ABC’s ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ as an assistant to the executive producer in July 2003, began writing on the show in 2006, and was promoted to co-head writer in May 2008.
