'The New York Times' And 'Jeopardy' Team For Promotion
The New York Times and "Jeopardy!" announced Monday an agreement between the paper and the quiz show under which the Times will offer a "Jeopardy!" Clue of the Day answered later on that day's "Jeopardy!" show or in the next day's issue of The New York Times. The Clue of the Day will appear adjacent to the "Tomorrow in The Times" box Monday through Friday and on Sunday near the "Information Directory," and will also be available online at nytimes.com/games.
As part of the agreement, The Times will be included periodically as a category on the television program. Also, the show's Brain Bus, staffed by the "Jeopardy!" Clue Crew, will appear Feb. 25 from 10a.m. until noon at the New York Times Travel Show, held at the Javits Center in New York City. A category called "All The News That's Fit to Print," about news articles and features of The New York Times, will be part of the simulated game played at the event. Clues in that category will come from various sections of the newspaper.
The "Jeopardy!" Brain Bus is a specially outfitted Winnebago that tours nationwide, conducting talent searches for possible contestants while providing visitors to the bus the experience and excitement of the "Jeopardy!" game.
