Alex Trebek, the 80-year-old host of the popular TV show Jeopardy! died Sunday.

Producers announced his death on social media

Trebek had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in March 2019.  Despite the stage 4 illness and immediate chemotherapy treatments, Trebek vowed to continue hosting the show.

He's been host of Jeopardy! since 1984.  The show is seen on WBRZ weekdays at 4:30 p.m. 

Production took a hiatus during the height of the coronavirus pandemic.  Broadcasts featured vintage episodes for most of the summer. 

Trebek was last in the studio on October 29, producers said.  Jeopardy! has enough episodes recorded feature Trebek as the host to be seen through December 25.  The show said there were no immediate plans to announce a new host.
