Katie Couric Announced as 'Jeopardy!' Guest Host

Katie Couric is temporarily taking over as the host of Jeopardy.

The Los Angeles Times reports that Katie will serve as one of the first guest hosts after the final episodes featuring long-time emcee Alex Trebek finish airing this week.

Alex passed away in November after battling pancreatic cancer. He continued taping episodes after he announced his diagnosis in 2019, filming his final episode only 10 days before his death. Alex shared a message with fans about his future replacement in one of his final interviews.

Jeopardy‘s producers have stated that the show will feature guest-hosts until a permanent replacement has been chosen. Jeopardy champion Ken Jennings has also been booked to host episodes of the long-running trivia show. The LA Times says Katie and Sony Pictures Television, who produces Jeopardy, declined to comment on whether she would be interested in serving as Alex‘s long-term replacement.

In November, Ryan Reynolds opened up about his last conversation with Alexsee what he had to say.
