CULVER CITY (CNS) - Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, former “Today'' host Katie Couric, actress Mayim Bialik and “60 Minutes'' correspondent Bill Whitaker will be guest hosts of “Jeopardy!'' executive producer Mike Richards announced today.
A donation will be made to the host's charity of choice equaling the cumulative winnings of the contestants during the weeks they serve as guest host.
Couric is scheduled to become the first female host of “Jeopardy!'' Richards said. The dates she will be the host were not announced, nor were the dates Rodgers, Bialik and Whitaker will host.
Richards will host for two weeks following the conclusion of the episodes guest-hosted by Ken Jennings. Those episodes began airing Monday.
“Jeopardy!'' is turning to guest hosts to fill the role held by Alex Trebek since its syndicated revival began in 1984. Trebek died Nov. 8 from pancreatic cancer at the age of 80.
