Trebek says he has pancreatic cancer

He holds a Guinness World Records record for Most Game Show Episodes Hosted by the Same Presenter for hosting almost 8,000 episodes of Jeopardy!. The longtime host gave his fans the grim news because he didn't want "overblown, inaccurate" rumor-mongering.

"Keep the faith and we'll win", he concluded, "We'll get it done, Thank you".

The 78-year-old says with love, support and prayers, he plans "to beat the low survival rate statistics for this disease".

"Truth told, I have to!"

You can see the announcement for yourself in the video above as well the sense of comfort that Trebek himself imparts on Jeopardy! fans through his trademark warmth and wit. "We'll get it done". There were no other details on his health status or the future of the show as he undergoes treatment.
