Chicago's WGN Morning News invited comedian Jeff Rogers, host of Jeff's Homemade Game show, to join the the morning program. News anchor Ana Belaval started with the big question, did we come up with the idea because of COVID? The answer is no, that the idea was developed a couple of years ago as we saw the opportunity to help families engage with each other outside of the digital space. First they can have fun together watching the show, then play the games. Jeff added that the concept was a perfect fit fo him because he had such a large family that his dad use to make the daily chores a game.
Anchor Dan Ponce asked Jeff to show the audience a few of the games they might see on the show. Jeff's wife and daughter joined in the fun playing 3 games, the third testing the anchors on their memory skills. You'll see, it wasn't so easy.
The interview concluded with Anna being so excited about the concept she said, "when this (COVID) is over, I want you to facilitate this at my house, can you come over and play at with my kids? ...I love it!" Dan added, "These are fantastic!"
