Richard Quest to Host ABC Quiz Show

By Chris Ariens 

CNN’s Richard Quest has been tapped to host the ABC summer quiz show “500 Questions.”

Airing for nine hours over nine nights, contestants will, as ABC says, “try to achieve the seemingly impossible task of answering 500 of the most difficult general knowledge questions ever devised.”

The show, from Mark Burnett productions, premieres Wednesday, May 20 with the finale set for Thursday, May 28.


Quest will continue to host his CNN International show “Quest Means Business.”
