GEORGE PLOTS TO AX ALEX!
News honcho’s scheme to nab Jeopardy! job from Trebek

POLITICS junkie George Stephanopoulos is plotting to take over Jeopardy! from ailing host Alex Trebek, stunned insiders say.

The ABC News titan, 59, has hyped the high-profile gig publicly — and sources snitch to GLOBE that he’s making a no-holds-barred grab for it!

“George has had secret meetings with TV bigwigs and even done a hush-hush audition behind closed doors,” spills an insider.

“Hosting Jeopardy! has long been a dream of his. He’s a fan of the show and his whole family watches it with him, including his daughters.”

Adds the tattletale: “He’s almost dead-certain for the job and a favorite, but they don’t want to announce anything yet out of respect for Alex.
