Deadline.com reports that long-time JEOPARDY! host Alex Trebek, 71, suffered a mild heart attack yesterday. The game show host was admitted into Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles to undergo further testing.
According to a Jeopardy producer, “Trebek is in good spirits and is undergoing further testing. He is expected to fully recover and be back on Jeopardy! when production begins taping in July for the new season, the show’s 29th.”
Last night, JEOPARDY! received a Daytime Emmy Award for Best Game/Audience Participation Show. The prize marks the game show's 14th Daytime Emmy. Trebek, who recently extended his contract to host JEOPARDY through 2014, has been a fixture on the show since 1984.
