“Jeopardy!” is continuing to fill out its roster of guest hosts.

Executive producer Mike Richards announced the latest group of celebrities set to stand behind the podium.

CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, “Today” show host Savannah Guthrie, Dr. Mehmet Oz and Dr. Sanjay Gupta will each helm the long-running game show in the upcoming weeks, reported Deadline.

“We look forward to each guest host bringing their unique abilities to the show and to our contestants winning a lot of money that we can match for charity,” Richards said in a statement.

Last month, actress Mayim Bialik, Katie Couric, NFL star Aaron Rodgers and "60 Minutes" correspondent Bill Whitaker were among the first media personalities revealed to take over as guest hosts.

Each stars’ turn as host will also help raise funds for their favorite charities.

“As a part of each guest host’s appearance, a donation will be made to a charity of their choice,” the show previously said in a press release. “The amount donated will equal the cumulative winnings of the contestants that compete during the weeks they serve as guest host.”

Legendary host Alex Trebek died in November at the age of 80 after battling pancreatic cancer.

Following his death, it was announced that Ken Jennings, the “Greatest of All Time” tournament winner, would be the first in a series of interim guest hosts.

Upon making first appearance as guest host in January, Jennings took time to pay tribute to Trebek.

“Sharing this stage with Alex Trebek was one of the greatest honors of my life,” Jennings said. “Not many things in life are perfect, but Alex did this job pretty much perfectly for more than 36 years, and it was even better up close. We were dazzled by his intelligence, charm and grace.”

He continued: “Like all ‘Jeopardy!’ fans, I miss Alex very much and I thank him for everything he did for all of us. Let’s be totally clear: No one will ever replace the great Alex Trebek. But we can honor him by playing the game he loved.”
