(AP) Think folks like Tim Russert, Tavis Smiley, Anderson Cooper, Ari Fleischer, Al Franken and Bob Woodward are smart? They’ll have a chance to prove it.
They’re among 15 “power players” signed up to play “Jeopardy!” in a special weeklong edition of the game that will be broadcast in May, it was announced this week.
The game show will be in Washington to tape the segments early next month. Each contestant will be playing for charity — with the winner each day getting a $50,000 jackpot.
Other contestants include Ashleigh Banfield, Maria Bartiromo, Aaron Brown, Gretchen Carlson, Tucker Carlson, Kweisi Mfume, Peggy Noonan, Keith Olbermann and Christine Todd Whitman.
