I will put Alex Trebek on a very short list of nearly-impossible-to-replace game show hosts. He really has made Jeopardy for the past 35 years, but he says due to his pancreatic cancer he may step down as host soon.
In an interview with CTV on Friday Alex said “I will keep doing it (the show) as long as my skills do not diminish, and they have started to diminish.” I find this so sad but very inspiring too – I think it’s so important to be honest with yourself about your highs and your lows.
One thing is definitely sure, Alex Trebek is an icon. Our love and respect go out to him as he continues his battle.
