    'Jeopardy' host Alex Trebek diagnosed with pancreatic cancer

    LOS ANGELES -- Alex Trebek, the longtime host of "Jeopardy," announced Wednesday that he had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

    "Normally the prognosis for this is not very encouraging, but I'm going to fight this and I'm going to keep working," Trebek said in a video message released on "Jeopardy" accounts. "I plan to beat the low survival rate statistics for this disease."

    "Help me keep the faith and we'll win. We'll get it done," he added.

    Trebek underwent surgery to remove blood clots on his brain in December 2017 but resumed taping new episodes of "Jeopardy" the next month. He said at the time that he had been diagnosed with subdural hematoma attributed to a fall he suffered earlier in the year.


    Trebek, 78, has served as the face of the game show since it made its debut in daytime syndication in 1984. With nearly 8,000 episodes under his belt, he holds the Guinness World Record for Most Game Show Episodes Hosted by the Same Presenter.

    "Jeopardy," seen by an estimated 24 million viewers each week, has been renewed through the 2022-2023 season with Trebek under contract through the 2021-2022 season. He said in a July 2018 interview before his most recent contract renewal that he could imagine a life after "Jeopardy" but would continue hosting the show "if I'm still enjoying it and if I'm not making too many mistakes."

    The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences has honored Trebek with a lifetime achievement award as well as five Daytime Emmy awards for Outstanding Game Show Host. He won a Peabody Award in 2011 and has been inducted into the Broadcasting & Cable Hall of Fame and the National Association of Broadcasters Broadcasting Hall of Fame.


    A native of Greater Sudbury, Canada, Trebek began his career as a television and radio newscaster for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. He made his debut on the air in America in 1973.

    not trebek. he's my TV shade queen but behind the bitchiness there's a heart of gold. he graduated from my university and donated millions to the school to establish a program that seeks to expose students to different worldviews.

    I'm sorry you guys, but none of these expressions of sadness were in the form of a question.

    Damn. I grew up watching him on Reach for the Top, here in Toronto. This is really sad. I hope he can fight it...very slim chance though ��

    God bless him. I hated to read this. 😔.

    I can't help but think of Will Ferrell's impersonation of him on SNL and Darrell Hammond's Sean Comnery. 😝

    Sorry guys. Of course we wish him all the best but pancreatic cancer is a bastard and he almost certainly won’t beat it.

    Yeah, and it's stage 4. I hope he doesn't suffer, but I know he can't beat this. I heard his announcement and love his upbeat attitude, but this is not good.
