Jeopardy! executive producer filling in as host for 2 weeks due to LA COVID-19 outbreak

GMA interview with Mike Richards

(KLTV) - Following the departure of Jeopardy! legend Ken Jennings after his six-week stint as guest-host, executive producer Mike Richards became an overnight sensation after stepping in to fill the shoes of the late, great Alex Trebek.

He’s filling in for the next 2 weeks as host because due to the COVID-19 outbreak in LA, many previously scheduled guest hosts were reticent to shoot- and he says the show must go on!

He spoke on Good Morning America Monday.
