Legendary Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek spoke to journalists at ABC's presentation at the TCA Winter Press Tour, where he gave an update on his health and how his pancreatic cancer treatment was progressing.
In the past, Trebek has been candid about the toll that his health was taking on him, telling Canadian news show W5 that his skills "have started to diminish."
"I talk to the producers about this all the time now. I say, ‘Look, I’m slurring my words. My tongue doesn’t work as much, as well as it used to. The chemo has caused sores inside my mouth. It makes it difficult for me to speak and enunciate properly.' They say, ‘Well, we don’t notice.’ I notice those things. And I’m sure there are observant members of the television audience who notice also."
