Alex Trebek Says Cancer Treatments May Force Him To Leave Jeopardy!

Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek is hinting that his ongoing battle with pancreatic cancer could force him to step away from the popular game show.

Trebek spoke candidly in a Friday interview with Canadas CTV television network, saying his chemotherapy treatments are starting to affect his speech.

“I talk to the producers about this all the time now. I say, Look, Im slurring my words. My tongue doesnt work as much, as well as it used to. The chemo has caused sores inside my mouth. It makes it difficult for me to speak and enunciate properly,” he explained.

“Im sure there are observant members of the television audience that notice also, but theyre forgiving,” he added. “But there will come a point when they will no longer be able to say, Its OK.'”

The Canada native has hosted Jeopardy! for 36 seasons, and revealed in March that hed been diagnosed with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Last month, Trebek released a video on the shows YouTube channel saying needed another round of chemo after a setback over the summer.>Read More – Source
