‘Jeopardy!’ host Alex Trebek updates statement about cancer treatment made in new memoir

“I’m going to stick with this current protocol, then that’s it. If it doesn’t work I’ll probably stop treatment,” he wrote.

But on Wednesday, Trebek clarified that he’s since changed his mind.

“That quote from the book was written BEFORE my current regimen, and I was going through some bad times,” Trebek explained on social media.

He added that his current numbers are “very good,” but if that changes, he would resume chemotherapy rather than stopping all treatment. “I am optimistic about my current plan,” Trebek added.

The host, who turned 80 on July 22, even apologized for any confusion.

“We’ve redesigned our set to separate the contestants and myself a little bit more from them,” Trebek said. “So we are taking all kinds of precautions. Our testing procedure now is done online.”
