Alex Trebek Tea Party Guy?
The New Republic has a fascinating article on long-time Jeopardy host Alex Trebek which reveals that he attends church regularly, watches Fox News, is a Redskins fan who doesn’t want them to change their name, and says the “Tea Party is a reflection of the people.”
He’s likely going to retire in 2016 but the revelation is not going to hurt his career. Jeopardy is watched by 25 million people per week, a huge number in today’s internet-inspired fractured markets, putting in second place among syndicated game shows.
The leader? Wheel of Fortune hosted by Vietnam vet and outspoken conservative Pat Sajak.
