- Alex Trebek And Ken Jennings will narrate the audiobook version of Trebek's book "THE ANSWER IS…"
Longtime Jeopardy! host and television icon Alex Trebek will narrate his forthcoming audiobook THE ANSWER IS…: Reflections on My Life along with the show’s record-setting contestant Ken Jennings. The audiobook will be released on Tuesday, July 21 simultaneous with the Simon & Schuster hardcover edition.
THE ANSWER IS…: Reflections on My Life details Trebek’s journey since debuting as the host of Jeopardy! in 1984, marriage, parenthood, education, success, and spirituality.
Joining Trebek on the audiobook as co-narrator is Ken Jennings, who holds the Jeopardy! record for the longest winning streak, having won 74 consecutive games and was recently crowned the “Greatest of All Time”, defeating super-champions James Holzhauer and Brad Rutter.
“I wanted to narrate as much of the book as I could, especially certain parts, but I was worried my voice would give out, so I asked if Ken Jennings would help me out. He graciously agreed, and now you can hear the stories as read by both of us,” said Alex Trebek.
“It was a real honor to be asked to help with Alex’s audiobook, but also a lot of pressure,” said Ken Jennings. “Your pronunciation has to be impeccable when you’re filling in for Alex Trebek!”
While THE ANSWER IS…: Reflections on My Life will be perfect for Jeopardy fans but also for people who want to listen to an inspiring story and understand why Trebek is a respected person in the industry.
