There’s no one one but LeVar Burton who has the love and devotion of so many to step into this role. I typically don’t care about celebrities very much, but for LeVar I feel genuine love, based on his talent, his intelligence, his wit, and his sharing of literature with young and old. He’s so relational with his audience, and he asks us to enjoy good stories with him, whether he’s acting, doing a podcast, or on Reading Rainbow. He’s the perfect choice.

From teaching children the words on, "Reading Rainbow," to helping adults use those words in questions, and answers, on Jeopardy. It feels like it should be the natural progression. Levar Burton belongs at the podium, as the next permanent host of Jeopardy.
