By now you’ve heard the sad news that Jeopardy host Alex Trebek passed away early Sunday.
So today, we’ll be revisiting my interview with him from some 30 years ago. He was promoting a book called, appropriately enough, The Jeopardy Book.
And get ready for some real Insider information about the show he hosted since 1984.
So here now, from 1990, Alex Trebek:
Vanna White has been turning the letters on TV’s “Wheel of Fortune” since 1982.
But viewers of the show know that Vanna is much more than just a letter turner.
Soon after joining the show, she rose to nearly the prominence of host, Pat Sajak.
I met Vanna White in 1987. She had written a memoir called “Vanna Speaks,” and I interviewed her at the convention of the American Booksellers Association.
So, here now, from 1987, Vanna White.
Vanna White is 63 now. She is signed to co-host “Wheel of Fortune” through 2022.
