Alex Trebek has given fans a new health update and announced a Jeopardy! first.
In a video recorded at his home, the 79-year-old said that for the first time ever old episodes of the game show will be broadcast this summer. New episodes can’t be taped because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
At the end of the clip, Alex gave fans an update on his treatment for pancreatic cancer. “I’m doing well. I’ve been continuing my treatment and it is paying off. Though it does fatigue me a great deal, my numbers are good. I’m feeling great. In fact, during the break from the studio, I even wrote a book that will be coming out July 21st.”
Trebek will release his memoir, The Answer Is…: Reflections on My Life, on Tuesday, the day before he turns 79.
