    Since she's busy running The Boarding House (viewtopic.php?f=14&t=36506), Alpana Singh is leaving as host of WTTW's Check, Please!

    There will be an upcoming talent search for a new host.

    Not unexpected. She has so many other irons in the fire. She has been excellent as a host and will be missed!

    I want to be the first to suggest a replacement for Alpana--

    New concept, two co-hosts. Fred and Manase!!

    Agreed. And a wonderfully nice person, in person.

    I think Brittany Payton would be a good host for that show.

    She may very well be an improvement. It's tough for me to form an opinion at their tortoise-paced production rate of something like 7 episodes every 18 months.

    LOL, so true but still, this feels like a significant upgrade.

    Hi,

    From comments in various interviews over the years, I wonder if her approach will change. After Alpana had the experience of owning and managing a restaurant, she wished she had questioned guests more on 'Check, Please.' It will be interesting to see how it all plays out.

    Regards,
