Aaron Rodgers has company with sports figures taking a spin as guest host of the popular TV show “Jeopardy.”

FOX Sports’ incomparable play-by-play voice Joe Buck will join the list of those taking the role for a time.

The host slot opened when legendary Alex Trebek passed away in November.

Per the New York Post:

Joe Buck will be a guest host on “Jeopardy!” putting him in contention for the coveted permanent job, The Post has learned.

Buck’s episodes are expected to air at some point in the mid-summer, according to sources.

Over the past two weeks, Rodgers hosted the program. Before Rodgers, the host list included Katie Couric, Dr. Mehmet Oz, Ken Jennings and the longtime executive producer of the program, Mike Richards.

Anderson Cooper, Bill Whitaker, Mayim Bialik, Savannah Guthrie and Dr. Sanjay Gupta are all on the schedule, as well.

From 2015-18 Buck hosted Undeniable with Joe Buck, a sports interview series on Audience Network.

Rodgers’ turn was completed with Friday’s show. He enjoyed his run, for sure.

“The best part of guest-hosting ‘Jeopardy!’ is watching the incredibly smart contestants test themselves against the game and against each other,” Rodgers said during one of the episodes. “It takes quick reflexes and the ability to make intelligent decisions on the fly to be a ‘Jeopardy!’ champion…something I can definitely relate to.”
