Alex Trebek hints that he’ll retire

Alex Trebek has hinted that he may be ready to step away from “Jeopardy!” the game show he’s hosted since 1984. He even went as far as to suggest potential replacements.
Speaking to Harvey Levin on the latest episode of “OBJECTified,” Trebek revealed there’s more than a 50/50 chance he’ll step away from his hosting duties in 2020, once his contract is up.
“Sure,” he responded, when asked if he can see life beyond “Jeopardy!”
Trebek, 78, even got candid about finding a potential replacement for him should the time come when someone else has to read the answers to some tough trivia questions.
Right now it has not been confirmed that Trebek plans to leave the show in 2020. However, based on his latest interview, it seems he’s giving serious thought to not renewing his contract. Earlier this year, production of the show was put on hiatus after the host revealed he underwent brain surgery. Fortunately, he was able to recover in a hurry and things went back on track.
