(fade to break)

Madison: Some members of our viewing audience will receive..

an Easter playlist thanks to Pandora. Who doesn't need one to tell you about the holiday on Sunday or Jesus' resurrection but Pandora has you all covered while you go out Easter egg hunting. Now back to our hunter of the jungle,  Pierre Kelly!

Me: Thank you Madi and welcome back.  There will be a neighborhood zombie watch meeting in the newsroom after this blog. All employees of GTK must leave early by that time to prepare for the meeting. Let's move on.

Last week, Scott Rogowsky, was leaving behind the mobile show and company that helped him make a name for himself to host a new MLB show, dubbed "ChangeUp." At the time of the announcement, details on the departure were scarce, and that hasn't really changed. What we do know is that CEO of HQ, Rus Yusupov, was unwilling to compromise, and refused to let Rogowsky hold another hosting job while he acted as a host for HQ Trivia. And as a result, Rogowsky had to choose one, and he chose his new MLB gig.
That all said, Rogowsky has since taken to Twitter to comment on the matter and give fans an update, revealing that as a lifelong baseball fan, the opportunity to host his own MLB show was too good to pass up. However, he will always be thankful for his co-workers at HQ, and of course, the fans that made the game as popular as it is.
"Sadly, it won't be possible for me to continue hosting HQ concurrently as I had hoped, and because I wasn't given the courtesy of a farewell show, please allow me to use this thread to say all the things I would have said on my final broadcast.

"I will forever be indebted to my former colleagues who created and supported this innovative platform that allowed my face and voice to reach millions of people around the world, and there will always be a special place in my heart for my HQties all across the HQniverse.

"Thank you for the outpouring of kind tweets and messages. I shall humbly remain your Quiz Daddy Emeritus, and I look forward to gettin down to the nitty-gritty and gettin this new show 'Change Up' on the road M-F, 7-10p ET alongside all-star Adnan Virk. Stay savage, and Let's Go Mets!"
HQ creators Intermedia Labs have also provided a statement...

"We continue to build an incredible company at HQ Trivia, from drawing hundreds of thousands of players to the platform daily, to increasing the size of the prize, to attracting strong talent. We've come a long way since Scott Rogowsky's first trivia game and we're grateful for everything he's done for the platform. This is a team that creates products for talent to really shine—we're just getting started at HQ Trivia, and as he makes his next move, wanted to take a minute to thank him for being part of our journey."

Meanwhile, the company has named a new permanent primetime host in former substitute host Matt Richards.

HQ co-creator and CEO Rus Yusupov confirms to TechCrunch that the company ran a SurveyMonkey survey of its top players and they voted that Richards, a comedian who has appeared on CBS' 2 Broke Girls, Nickelodeon's School of Rock and was a voice-over host for game show Trivial Takedown on FUSE, rated higher than Rogowsky. Yusupov says HQ is excited to have Richards as its new prime time host. It's also putting out offers to more celebrity guests to host for a few shows, a few weeks or even a whole season of one of its time slots.
According to multiple sources, more than half of the startup's staff signed an internal petition to depose CEO Rus Yusupov, whom they saw as mismanaging the company. But Yusupov then fired some core supporters of the mutiny, leading to a downward spiral of morale that mirrors HQ's plummeting App Store rank. HQ Trivia, is reportedly looking for a new CEO following half of the startup's staff signed an internal petition to depose CEO Yusupov who they saw as mismanaging the company. 

But despite Scott's unceremonious exit, the trivia wheels still roll on and on. We got more in......

Nailed It!, Netflix's home baking competition, is getting local versions in France, Spain and Germany following the launch of a remake in Mexico.
The series, which sees home bakers with a terrible track record take a shot at re-creating edible masterpieces for a cash prize, originally launched in the U.S. hosted by Nicole Byer and Jacques Torres in March 2018. The Magical Elves-produced show was followed by a second season in June and a holiday special in December.
The SVOD service then launched a remake in Mexico in February that was hosted by comedian Omar Chaparro and chef Anna Ruiz with a series of guest judges including Sylvia Weinstock.
Following its first quarter financial results, Netflix revealed that the Mexican version had been a hit locally. In a letter to investors, it noted, "¡Nailed It!: México [achieved] three times more first-month watchers in Mexico than the dubbed US version."
It revealed that it will follow this up with local adaptations in Europe, however, it did not give details on dates or judges.
The move comes as it bulks up its international non-scripted efforts. Last year, it acquired the remake rights to British entertainment format The Circle, which debuted on Channel 4, and is producing versions of the Studio Lambert and Motion Content Group-produced show in the U.S. as well as in France and Brazil.
