There’s a petition circulating asking that LeVar Burton be considered for the job as the new host of “Jeopardy!”

The petition is on and describes Burton’s career as the perfect choice to host ‘Jeopardy!’ because of his 21 seasons of PBS’ “Reading Rainbow,” Geordi La Forge on Star Trek: The Next Generation, as well as Kunta Kinte in the Alex Haley mini-series “Roots.” said that Burton has “shaped the minds of several generations of trivia-loving nerds.”

Burton wasn’t sure about the petition but changed his mind after seeing close to 200,000 signatures so far. He reposted the link to the petition with the caption, “Leaving this here in the event the powers that be are listening…”

I'm still trying to figure it out too! I'm a child of God that has a lot to say. I've been given a platform on the air to say it but I tend to be a bit lengthy so enter my website. The "confessions" you see on my website are not the gossip kind but rather conversations with artists, authors, speakers and teachers within the faith-based community. Also, my journey has been colorful, rich and sometimes really hard so, I look for answers and respite through writing. My mom wanted me to write a book  and I'm working on that, so bear with me as I fumble my way through. I'm working on balancing my extremely fun work life with my personal life that is filled with challenges these days. I know that God will see me to victory so... welcome to my life. ~Randi
