Jeopardy host Alex Trebek has been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer.
The 78-year-old broke the news in a video message Wednesday.
“I have some news to share with all of you, and it’s in keeping with my longtime policy of being open and transparent with our Jeopardy fan base,” Trebek says. “I also wanted to prevent you from reading or hearing some overblown or inaccurate reports regarding my health.
