Oakland resident Amy Schneider continues her winning streak on “Jeopardy!”

The Morning Show with Nikki Medoro says Schneider is on track to be the winningest victor ever. With 30 games under her belt, “Jeopardy!” contestant and Bay Area local is on an exciting path of success. Becoming the first woman to win more than $1 million, she has landed in the game’s top four highest-earning competitors.

Nikki Medoro also examines Comedian and Commentator W. Kamau Bell’s series on Bill Cosby, which will be coming to Showtime next week, reflecting on the impact of Cosby’s fall on the African-American community.
