Alex Trebek Wants Laura Coates To Replace Him on '''Jeopardy''' | Money

She does not look familiar to me. Probably graduated long past my Class of 1989 U of MN Law School. And she looks a lot younger than I am.

In 2020, Alex will be 80 years old.

Time for a rest and do the things that he really enjoys, IMHO

Love both Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy.

Tried to get past the Jeopardy online quiz when they had try-outs in Orlando but could not figure out the button or something like that.

I doubt if Laura Coates would want a job like the host of Jeopardy. Pay is probably extremely well but she would not get all the interaction with daily news makers she gets as a journalist.

I remember a Mondale that was a journalist. I had a Mondale in some of my law classes but not the female journalist. She passed in 2011. Eleanor Mondale - Wikipedia

Alex Trebek had a brain injury after a fall. He was on You Tube a while ago announcing it. January 2018. I don't know the outcome, but I wonder if it has something to do with his wanting to retire.

I recall that.

I think he would want to go right away if he had had a serious brain injury.

I did follow Laura Coates on Facebook and will say "hi" to a fellow Graduate of the U of MN Law School. And perhaps explain what I have been doing since 1991 to her. She probably had a few of the same law professors I did. Depends on when she went there though.

William Mondale is the one who was in some of my law classes. He was class of 1990 I believe like my former roommate/girlfriend Jennifer and the first Muslim elected to Congress. Keith Ellison - Wikipedia Ellison was not in any of my classes though that I can recall but some of these were quite big.
