Alex Trebek Moderated 2018 Debate in Pennsylvania’s Battle for Governor

Alex Trebek

Alex Trebek – the longtime host of Jeopardy! – will moderate one of the debates in Pennsylvania’s gubernatorial race, writes Emily Heil for The Washington Post.

Trebek will pose questions to candidates at the forum sponsored by the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry on Oct. 1.

The choice of moderator is unusual as Trebek’s questions usually focus on trivia rather than on policy issues. Past debates sponsored by the chamber have been moderated by more conventional choices, like Ted Koppel.

But Trebek said that he would be tough and would persist until he got answers.

“Unlike some of the other moderators, I’m not going to disparage them,” he said. “I would try to pin them down, even though I might look bad doing it.”
