Question: Who is no longer hosting HQ Trivia? If you guessed Scott Rogowsky, you got the answer correct, but you may still be disappointed. The popular quizmaster, who was beloved by gamers all across the world, will no longer be an emcee of the app-based nightly trivia competition.
The comedian was forced to make a hard decision after accepting a gig co-hosting a baseball show in conjunction with Major League Baseball, ChangeUp, that airs on weeknights for the sports-based subscription video streaming service DAZN. While Rogowsky was hoping to be able to continue hosting HQ Trivia on weekends, an acceptable deal could not be made between the two parties. He had been with the live mobile game for about a year-and-a-half, and hosted his last game in late March.
"Nothing in my decade-plus entertainment career has meant more to me personally and professionally than my involvement with HQ," said Rogowsky in a statement, according to Page Six.
"I am tremendously grateful to the talented team of engineers, writers, animators, and producers at Intermedia Labs who helped me grow the show into the international phenomenon it became and, above all, I will forever be thankful for the millions of HQties around the world who will always hold a special place in my heart."
