Television icon Alex Trebek, the longtime host of Jeopardy!, will keynote PromaxBDA’s Station Summit as television station marketing and promotion professionals gather for the annual conference.
The summit will take place from June 25-29 at the Mirage Resort in Las Vegas, and Trebek will take the main stage at 8 a.m. on June 27. The presentation will be moderated by Harry Friedman, executive producer of Jeopardy!, and will include a question-and-answer session with PromaxBDA Station Summit attendees.
Trebek, who this fall begins hosting his 35th season of the game show, will talk about his five-decade career in broadcasting, from his start at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation through his years hosting more than a dozen game shows in the 1970s and ‘80s, including his tenure as Jeopardy! host.
“It’s an honor to host two broadcasting icons — Alex Trebek and Harry Friedman — on our Station Summit main stage,” said Steve Kazanjian, PromaxBDA president and CEO. “As members working in local markets confront a rapidly evolving industry, we look forward to hearing insights from two people who have excelled at entertaining and engaging audiences for decades.”
