For 36 years, Alex Trebek was the iconic host of Jeopardy. After Trebek passed in November, Levar Burton became the fan favorite to be the next Jeopardy host.
The former Reading Rainbow host guest hosted last week, and then, news came out today in Variety that Executive Producer Mike Richards is in negotiations to be the next host. Who?
Not Ken Jennings, not Mayim Bialik, not Levar Burton. Not even Katie Couric!
