Alex Trebek says his time as 'Jeopardy' host may come to an end soon

Posted: Updated:

In a wide-ranging interview with Canada's CTV, long-time 'Jeopardy' host Alex Trebek said his run of more than 35 years may be coming to an end soon. 

"I will keep doing it (the show) as long as my skills do not diminish, and they have started to diminish," he said. 

Trebek announced last month that he would resume chemotherapy for his pancreatic cancer but would continue to host the popular quiz show. 

Although things appear to be getting worse for the 79-year-old, he appears to be staying strong. 

"The thought of the pancreatic cancer does not frighten me," he said. "I'm 79 years old. So, hey, I've lived a good life, a full life, and I'm nearing the end of that life. I know that."
