This Journalist Wouldn't Say No To Hosting Jeopardy! After Alex Trebek Retires

There’s been a lot of speculation about just who would take over for Alex Trebek if and when he retires as host from Jeopardy!, and George Stephanopoulos just threw is hat into the running.

The journalist spoke about the possibility during an interview on Howard Stern’s SiriusXM show on Wednesday (May 13).

“The first thing I said was ‘George Stephanopoulos’ and everyone went, ‘That ain’t crazy,”’ Howard shared, while referencing a conversation he had about who could be the next host. “You’ve got the intellectual capacity.”

George admitted he wasn’t against the idea of it.

“I think it would be a lot of fun, but I like what I’m doing too,” he replied. “I am not going to be Shermanesque about it. It’s a great show … It’s very flattering. Big shoes to fill.”

Alex has spoken many times about his successor, recommending CNN analyst Laura Coates, LA Kings announcer Alex Faust and TCM host Ben Mankiewicz for the job.

George is currently quarantining at his home, after testing positive for coronavirus – just a few weeks after wife Ali Wentworth was diagnosed.

Good Morning America anchor George Stephanopoulos, 59, revealed he has tested positive for COVID-19 aka the novel Coronavirus.

The former White House Communications Director says he thought he would test negative as he has had nearly none of the classic symptoms.

“I’ve never had a fever, never had chills, never had a headache, never had a cough, never had shortness of breath,” George said. “I’m feeling great.”

“There was one night, several weeks ago, when I went to bed early with some lower back pain and I thought it was from a hard workout that day, and it cleared up the next morning,” he added. “Then several days after that I had one day when I had a diminished sense of smell, but that was it for my symptoms over the last several weeks.”

George‘s wife, Ali Wentworth, had Coronavirus and she’s feeling better. We hope the whole family feels 100% soon!
