"Pleasantville Patch" featured Dyson Professor Kate Fink in "Pace Prof Appears On Jeopardy!"

Pace University's very own Professor Kate Fink, PhD, starred on "JEOPARDY!" Monday evening, competing against some of the best and brightest across the country. The renowned game show, hosted by Alex Trebek, has aired more than 7,000 episodes over the past three decades. The show was syndicated in 1984.

Kate said the audition process took several months. "I had taken the online test several times and auditioned a couple of times in person before getting the call to go out to LA." Fink, who gave birth to her daughter in December, flew to Los Angeles in February for the show's recording. Jeopardy staff members left a remarkable impression on her: "They were very smart. You can tell they love their jobs."

A faculty member of the Media, Communications and Visual Arts department within the Dyson College of Arts and Sciences, Fink teaches undergraduate and graduate journalism and communication courses at Pace University's Pleasantville campus.

"I was delighted by how many people were cheering me on! Several of my Pace buddies texted, emailed, and posted messages of support on social media, which was pretty awesome," she said.

This is Fink's third appearance on a game show. She appeared on "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" and "The Weakest Link."
