"Jeopardy" host Alex Trebek to resume chemotherapy

Posted: Updated:

A little more than a week after he returned to host his 36th season of "Jeopardy," Alex Trebek announced on Good Morning America Tuesday he is back in chemotherapy for pancreatic cancer. 

“I lost about 12 pounds in a week. And my numbers went sky high, much higher than they were when I was first diagnosed," said in the interview with T.J. Holmes. "So, the doctors have decided that I have to undergo chemo again and that’s what I’m doing.

Trebek, 79, has hosted close to 8,000 episodes of the trivia show, the record for most episodes of a single game show. And that's all he wants to keep doing. 

“As long as I can walk out and greet the audience and the contestants and run the game I’m happy," he said.
