ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, who has had a lengthy career as a journalist, democratic adviser, and former White House communications director for Bill Clinton, apparently wants to be the next Jeopardy host according to a new report!
He was first linked to the job back in May when he was asked if he’d ever want to do it. “I think it would be a lot of fun, but I like what I’m doing too,” he told THR. “I am not going to be Shermanesque about it. It’s a great show. It’s very flattering. Big shoes to fill.”
The Wrap is now reporting that a “highly placed person” said he “has his eye on the lucrative position and that his team was lobbying hard at ABC.” Jeopardy airs on ABC, where George currently works as a correspondent.
