The Daytime Emmys were held on Friday, June 24, and while celebrating another win for the best game show, an executive producer for Jeopardy! hinted to Variety that some big news might be revealed soon. “We hope to have a hosting announcement very, very soon,” executive producer Michael Davies told the publication backstage at the event.

Davies also complimented guest hosts Mayim Bialik and Ken Jennings, saying that they “have done [an] incredible job hosting,” but he did not hint at who the studio might be hiring — including whether they’re a recent guest host or someone completely new.

The Emmy-winning executive producer referenced the big debacle surrounding the search to replace longtime, beloved host, the late Alex Trebek, saying, “The scandal was, as we call it at Jeopardy!, ‘the awkward months’…But it showed the power of our audience and how passionately our fans care about the program, which is just so important.”

After Trebek passed away, Jeopardy! featured a slew of celebrity guest hosts in 2021. Then in August 2021, ABC announced that executive producer Mike Richards would be the new permanent host, with Bialik hosting primetime specials and spinoff events. Soon after the announcement, Richards’ past controversial comments were brought to light and fans protested, leading Richards to step down only a week later, and ABC to start the search again.
