'Jeopardy' Host Alex Trebek Says He Has Stage 4 Cancer

The video was posted on the Jeopardy Youtube page.

As you can see, Trebek references his own policy of being open and transparent with Jeopardy! fans as the reason he's making this announcement in such a public way.

According to the Jeopardy! website, Alex Trebek wakes up at 5:15 a.m. on show taping days. He also put his diagnosis in context, saying he was one of "50,000 other people in the United States each year" to get this diagnosis.

Closing his statement, Trebek says, "So help me, keep the faith and we'll win". "We'll get it done". The longtime host gave his fans the grim news because he didn't want "overblown, inaccurate" rumor-mongering.

"I'm going to fight this and I'm going to keep working.I plan to beat the low survival rate statistics for this disease", he said.

Trebek, who was born in Ontario, Canada, has been the beloved quizmaster on "Jeopardy!" since 1984.

Last year, 78-year-old Alex spoke to Harvey Levin for an episode of "Objectified" and said he was seriously considering retiring, but he later signed a contract extension to secure his gig through the 2021-2022 season.

He made his first American television appearance in 1973 as the host of NBC game show "Wizard of Odds".

Trebek lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Jean.
