Alex Trebek recovering from brain surgery

JEOPARDY! host Alex Trebek was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Friday, December 15, as he was experiencing complications from hitting his head in a fall that took place in October.

The show posted a video to its website on Thursday about the incident.

The procedure aimed to get rid of the blood clots that had surfaced in his brain.

"Surgery was performed", he said "After two days in the hospital I came home and started recovery". He was diagnosed with a subdural hematoma and underwent surgery to remove it December 16.

All of us here at 1010 WINS wish Alex a speedy recovery - because what is Jeopardy! without Alex Trebek?

"Jeopardy!" still remains incredibly popular, and Trebek holds a world record for hosting over 7,300 game show episodes. "The prognosis is excellent, and I expect to be back in the studio taping more Jeopardy! programs very, very soon!" However, the upcoming College Championship will film in March instead of January and air in April.

In a video message, Trebek thanked fans for their concern as word of his surgery spread.
