Alex Trebek no longer in jeopardy

“Jeopardy” host Alex Trebec was released from Cedars-Sinai Hospital today following a minor heart attack. He’s home in Studio City recuperating, but like the trouper he is, issued this statement for his fans:

“I’m truly overwhelmed by the great show of support and compassion expressed in the past few days to me, my family and my coworkers. Even though I know Jeopardy! is a very popular program, I was still surprised at the number of people who took time from their schedules to call or send a note of encouragement. I thank you all so very much. I’m on the mend, and will be spending Christmas at home with my family. I will be back in the studio on January 14 to tape our Teen Tournament, which is always one of my favorite competitions. Meanwhile, I hope you will continue to watch and enjoy the program. The shows were taped before my heart attack, so what you are seeing is original, not rerun material. Happy Holidays to all of you. Alex”

    Hi Alex, I’m sure you’ve heard from many members of the C.H. community but I just wanted to add my own best wishes for a full and speedy recovery. I hope the future truly feels a bit sweeter.
    all the best,
