The face of HQ Trivia, Scott Rogowsky, is out as host.
Rogowsky is moving full time to DAZN, a sports streaming service, as cohost of a baseball show named “ChangeUp.” He is Quiz Daddy – the nickname many of his fans took to calling him – no longer.
He confirmed his exit from HQ Trivia with TMZ on Friday.
“Nothing in my decade-plus entertainment career has meant more to me personally and professionally than my involvement with HQ,” he told TMZ. “While the decision to leave HQ was a difficult one, I am delighted to begin this next chapter in my career with the amazing people at MLB and DAZN.”

According to TMZ, Rogowsky attempted to stay on as an HQ Trivia host on weekends, “but CEO Rus Yusupov wouldn’t budge.” Rogowsky’s new show, “ChangeUp,” conflicts with the timing of HQ Trivia’s weekday broadcasts.
Representatives from HQ Trivia issued the following statement: “We continue to build an incredible company at HQ Trivia, from drawing hundreds of thousands of players to the platform daily, to increasing the size of the prize, to attracting strong talent. We’ve come a long way since Scott Rogowsky’s first trivia game and we’re grateful for everything he’s done for the platform. This is a team that creates products for talent to really shine-we’re just getting started at HQ Trivia, and as he makes his next move, wanted to take a minute to thank him for being part of our journey.”
