'Jeopardy' host Trebek undergoes surgery

'Jeopardy!' Host Alex Trebek On Medical Leave Following Surgery

"Jeopardy!" host Alex Trebek is recovering after undergoing brain surgery and has taken a medical leave from hosting duties. Trebek posted a video message to the show's YouTube channel, explaining he needed the procedure to remove blood clots from his brain, the result of a fall two months ago. Deadline reported that Trebek was admitted in mid-December for the "successful" surgical procedure, and was discharged two days later.

Trebek appeared in a video on the "Jeopardy" Facebook page Thursday to announce that he'd had the surgery during the show's holiday break. The 77-year-old, who has hosted the show for more than three decades, was suffering from subdural hematoma due to an accident he had in October of 2017. "And I want to thank all of you for your concern".

The Canadian-born, Emmy-winning host has become an American institution since taking the helm of the syndicated trivia game in 1984, and he is slated to return to the studio in mid-January.

Not to worry, diehard fans: the hiatus will not effect Jeopardy!'s schedule, with the exception of its annual college championship, which will now air in April. Fans of Jeopardy! cannot only take solace in knowing the longtime host has recovered nicely (he is expected back in the studio later this month), but that his medical issue did not interfere with the show's broadcast schedule. The rest of the broadcast schedule will remain uninterrupted, the statement said.
