"Daily Show" senior British correspondent John Oliver announced his engagement to girlfriend Kate Norley at a Saturday Comedy Central event, according to

The couple met at the 2008 Republican National Convention, which Oliver was covering for the "Daily Show." Norley, a former Army medic who served in the Gulf War, was there campaigning on behalf of Vets for Freedom, an organization whose mission is to "educate the American public about the importance of achieving success" in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The engagement took place in July during a trip to the Caribbean and they plan to marry "some time next year."


More after the jump, including video clips from Oliver's convention coverage and a Norley appearance on Fox News.

In a January NPR interview, Oliver described Norley as his soon-to-be-wife and talked about their courtship:

And so -- yeah, we met [at the Republican National Convention] and kind of kept in sporadic touch and then met up Christmas last year. And, you know, we'd live together pretty soon afterwards. It was -- yeah, we met in what I would say scientifically is the least romantic place on earth: the Republican National Convention.
