Alex Trebek is prepared to say goodbye to Jeopardy. But hopefully not for a while.


Cover picture for the articleWhen Alex Trebek leaves Jeopardy, the quiz show he’s hosted since 1984, he says his producers will find out about his departure the day he tapes his final program. “I made this decision a long time ago. What I would do, it would be the same as when I shaved my mustache. I would do it on a whim,” Trebek said. “On that particular day, I will speak to Harry [Friedman, executive producer], and I will speak to Clay [Jacobsen], our director, and tell them, ‘Give me 30 seconds at the end of the program. That’s all I need to say goodbye, because it’s going to be the last show.’”
