Alex Trebek Celebrates His 80th Birthday By Releasing His First Memoir


Canadian/American treasure Alex Trebek turns 80 this Wednesday. And how will this legend celebrate? By Releasing his very first memoir, titled, The Answer Is...: Reflections on My Life, which comes out Tuesday, a day before Trebek's actual birthday.

Last year, Trebek revealed he was battling pancreatic cancer and recently received a health update and that the news was good.

"I'm doing well," Trebek said in a video posted to social media last week. "I'm continuing my treatment, and it is paying off."

This week, Jeopardy will broadcast Mr. T's first five episodes dating back to 1984.

I love Alex Trebek and although the outlook is never good when pancreatic cancer is the diagnosis, if anyone can crush it, its the Quizmaster Extraordinaire.

Happy Birthday, Alex, and the best of health to you!
