Trebek was the host of Jeopardy! for 36 years, since the show's syndication debut. He first revealed his cancer diagnosis in March of 2019, and after taking a year and a half off, he rejoined the Jeopardy! stage in September of this year.
We at Celebrity Page TV are sending our love to Trebek's family and friends during this difficult time. He was an icon in so many ways, and may he rest in peace.
