Local trivia expert Henry Michaels has made it onto “Jeopardy!”
You can watch the Music Academy of the West official at 7 p.m. Feb. 2 on NBC affiliate KSBY-TV, Channel 6.
While Mr. Michaels didn’t perform in front of the game show’s iconic host, the late Alex Trebek, he was very excited to appear on the show, nonetheless. (Acclaimed player Ken Jennings is the guest host until a permanent successor is named.)
“Being a contestant on ‘Jeopardy!’ was certainly an unforgettable experience,” Mr. Michaels said in a news release. “Just to make it through the audition and onto the show was a great honor. Although I’m sad to have just missed the tenure of the late great Alex Trebek, being one of the first contestants in the show’s next chapter was rewarding.”
At the Music Academy in Montecito, Mr. Michaels is the director of audience experience and engagement.
