JEOPARDY! is reportedly set to "announce Mike Richards AND Big Bang Theory's Mayim Bialik as hosts" about ten months after Alex Trebek's death.
Jeopardy! will reportedly have two hosts for the first time, according to The Daily Beast.
Mike had supposedly been the frontrunner during the a series of guest-hosts for the hosting gig.
While also hosting the primetime gig, Mayim will also allegedly serve as host of the spin-off specials.
The first ABC special that Mayim will reportedly host has been tentatively titled as Jeopardy! National College Championship.
A Sony Pictures Television spokesperson has declined to comment to The Daily Beast.
Katie Couric, LeVar Burton, Aaron Rodgers, Anderson Cooper, George Stephanopoulos, and Robin Roberts previously served as guest hosts on the quiz show.
Prior to his death, Alex had hosted the ABC show for about 36 years.
Recently, a memo – which was obtained by The Hollywood Reporter – had reportedly been sent to staff that confirmed that Mike was asked to "consider hosting the show."
"It is true that I was asked if I would consider hosting the show. I was humbled and deeply honored," Mike claimed in the memo.
