New host for Jeopardy?

posted by Joel Riley - 

America’s favorite trivia master is ready to graze greener pastures. Jeopardy host Alex Trebek tells TMZ there's a “50/50 [chance] and a little less” that he’ll stay on board when his contract expires in two years.

Trebek has hosted the iconic game-show since 1984. When TMZ chief Harvey Levin asked the 78-year-old if he had anyone in mind as a replacement, Trebek name-checked two people. 

“I mentioned to our producer not so long ago that the fellow that does play-by-play for the Los Angeles Kings — they should consider him,” Trebek said, referring to Alex Faust.

“There is an attorney, Laura Coates,” he said. “She’s African-American and she appears on some of the cable news shows from time to time.”

Coates heard about the story and took to Twitter immediately to (understandably) humble-brag: “Incredibly honored & humbled @Jeopardy Alex Trebek 1) knows who I am 2) thinks I’d be a great host of my fave game show ever that I grew up watching w/ my family & still watch w/ my own kids (who saw him say this & now think I’m a genius) #Dying.”

An example of her work...

And here's Faust...
