LOS ANGELES (AP) — Longtime “Jeopardy!” host Alex Trebek was hospitalized Tuesday after a minor heart attack, a spokesman for the game show said.
Trebek, 67, was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center late Monday night and was expected to remain there about two days for tests and observation, said show spokesman Jeff Ritter.
“Thankfully it was a minor heart attack,” Ritter said. He did not give other details.
A post on the official “Jeopardy!” Web site said Trebek was “resting comfortably in a Los Angeles hospital, and he will be back in the studio for the next scheduled tapings in January.” His heart attack was first reported by “Entertainment Tonight.”
