Hugh: LeVar Burton Endorses Online Petition to Make Him the Permanent ‘Jeopardy!’ Host
After Alex Trebek’s passing, the cycle of guest hosts continues on “Jeopardy!” Eventually, a full-time host will be chosen. Many people want LeVar Burton to have the job. A petition on Change.org suggesting LeVar take over has over 161,000 digital signatures. On Monday, Burton retweeted the petition link and wrote, “Leaving this here in the event the powers that be are listening…” Burton is interested! We’ll see what happens when executives decide who will be the permanent “Jeopardy!” host.
