Canadian TV Icon Alex Trebek will be taking some time off following surgery to remove blot clots in his head.
The 77 year old Sudbury native was diagnosed in December with subdural hematoma, which was a complication from hitting his head in a bad fall in October. Trebek posted a video updating fans on his condition and promised to be back in the studio filming episodes of Jeopardy! “very, very soon”.
Because Jeopardy! tapes months in advance the show’s broadcast schedule will be unaltered for the most part with the only exception being that their College Championship has been moved to April.
Best wishes to Alex!!
