Lovely. Sometimes that's all you need.

Gives a real insight into their different strengths. Trebek's interview style - especially the delivery - is crafted to put someone at ease as much a possible. That's clearly developed from decades of the contestant interview segment. Regis, on the other hand, even at his age, has a very frenetic style. He has a joke chambered until it's time to talk turkey. Or bite into it. As it were.

That's a valuable three minutes to anyone interested in broadcasting or podcasting.

Can we maybe have an informal rule here that any positive post about Alex not start with "Alex Trebek, longtime host of Jeopardy..."? I about had a heart attack when I scanned the front page this morning and saw this post.

RIP Regis Philbin, though; this clip (from the 2018 documentary Game Changers) was uploaded to YouTube last month, the day after the 88-year-old died of natural causes.

Goddamnit, I almost had a coronary midway through reading the first sentence. I wish we could reserve the formula "[Beloved Public Figure], longtime [what they are famous for], ..." for obituary posts
