St. Bonaventure Alum to Appear on 'Jeopardy'

St. Bonaventure University alumnus Dr. Robert Kochersberger, ’72, will appear on Jeopardy! on Monday, April 28. The quiz show airs locally at 7:30 p.m. on WIVB (Channel 4 in Buffalo).

Kochersberger, associate professor of English at North Carolina State University, graduated from St. Bonaventure in 1972 with a degree in journalism. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Tennessee.

Kochersberger has been teaching journalism at N.C. State since 1986. He is an expert on muckraker Ida Tarbell and routinely writes for the Raleigh News & Observer.

He has also been a Fulbright professor in Yugoslavia, Thailand, Egypt and Slovenia. For fun, he is a private pilot.

In the 1970s, Kochersberger worked as a reporter at The Post-Journal in Jamestown and then at The Daily Press in Binghamton.
