Who is Giannis Antetokounmpo?
Who is Cavalier Johnson?
What is that snow pile outside the Marcus Center parking structure that Milwaukee Record meticulously monitors every winter?
We’re guessing those will be some of the answers/questions in tonight’s Jeopardy! (Okay, maybe not the last one.) Yes, according to Milwaukee’s CBS 58, the city will be featured in a “News Clues” category during the June 15 episode of the popular, strangely Milwaukee/Wisconsin-obsessed quiz show. Oh, and CBS 58 anchors will read the clues! Neat!
Can’t wait for you to see @Jeopardy tomorrow night– featuring some of your favorite @CBS58 anchors! We’re reading news clues about Milwaukee– so look for us tomorrow night at 6. #Jeopardy @PorterfieldNews @MikeCurkov @MikeStrehlow @NicoleKoglinMKE pic.twitter.com/bmOkhKx0sz

Jeopardy! airs at 6 p.m. CST on CBS.
City-focused “News Clues” categories tend to play fast and loose with the concept of “news”—thus, nearly anything related to Milwaukee is fair game. So, expect to watch Jeopardy! players get stumped by questions/answers involving:
The Milwaukee Bridge War of 1845
The Cryptosporidium Outbreak of 1993
The Bronze Fonz
That scene in Wayne’s World
The 2020 Democratic National Convention
The Dead Alewives
George Carlin getting arrested at Summerfest
Probably Giannis again
