Bob Barry’s Unearthed Interviews Podcast: Alex Trebek

When you mention the game show Jeopardy, the name of Alex Trebek immediately comes to mind. Alex hosted the syndicated show for 37 seasons. He hosted other game shows and appeared as himself in numerous films and TV series. Trebek was born in Canada. He moved to the United States in 1973 and became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1998. He received the Daytime Emmy award for Outstanding Game Show Host eight times for Jeopardy. I spoke with Alex shortly after the revival of Jeopardy. He graciously gave me the inside story on game shows, what it takes to become a host, and how hard is it to become a contestant?
