Alex Trebek Suffers Heart Attack, Won’t Miss Work

Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek isn’t expected to miss any time at work after suffering a mild heart attack Saturday.

The 71-year-old was in “good spirits” at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Trebek previously suffered a heart attack in 2007.

“He is expected to fully recover and be back at Jeopardy! when production begins taping in July for the new season, the show’s 29th,” said Sony Television rep Paula Askanas.
