Alex Trebek diagnosed with cancer

Recommended Posts

He's been hosting the reboot since 1984. That (and the original, of my youth) have occupied such a significant role in pop culture.

Oh no.  Hate to be the fatalist but stage 4 of an incurable cancer overall ain't looking good for someone his age.  

It's not looking at all, actually.

More sad news.  I like his spirit though...very much.  Alex is in my home every night.  I wish him strength and courage.  My prayers are with him.

So true Jim! Kind of like "The Wheel of Fortune" with Pat and Vanna.

Watch every night as well. Tough stuff for sure.

Hoping for the best.

Ok, I am not old enough to remember this show in black and white, but I do remember Alex doing Reach for the Top. My sister was on it! 

He was already iconic in Canada before he went to the states and did Jeopardy. Here is an SCTV spoof.

This really makes me sad. I'm a huge Jeopardy fan, and have been recording and watching it since I first got a VCR back in the 80's. The recent discussion was who might take over the show after Trebek's retirement. Sadly, we may find out that answer sooner than we would have liked.

Alex wins Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Game Show Host.  He received a standing ovation.  This is from backstage with the press.
