huffpost – Katie Couric, Aaron Rodgers for being ‘Jeopardy!’ Guest hosts

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Katie Couric, Mayim Bialik, Aaron Rodgers and journalist Bill Whitaker are among the future guest hosts who will replace the late Alex Trebek in “Jeopardy!”

The show announced Wednesday that Couric, the journalist and former host of the “Today” show, would become the first woman to host the show.

Trebek, the face of the show for 36 years, died of pancreatic cancer on November 8, and the last shows he recorded aired last week. The show chose to use a series of acting guest hosts rather than immediately finding permanent replacements.

Ken Jennings, considered the show’s biggest champion, is currently the first guest host. After his run is over, executive producer Mike Richards will fill in for two weeks as the newly announced guests prepare for their stint.
