“Jeopardy!” has announced its next round of guest hosts.
The syndicated game show, whose longtime host Alex Trebek died in late 2019, is being guest hosted by champion Ken Jennings the week of Jan. 10, 2021.
The show will welcome journalist and anchor Katie Couric, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, “60 Minutes” correspondent Bill Whitaker and actress and neuroscientist Mayim Bialik in the coming weeks.
Executive producer Mike Richards will also host for two weeks’ worth of shows after Jennings’ run finishes.
The show also announced it will be making donations to each guest host’s charity of choice equivalent to the total cumulative winnings of contestants during that week.
The announcement did not make it clear when each host is scheduled to appear and also noted additional guest hosts will be named to complete the season.
