Alex Trebek may be ready to retire from hosting Jeopardy!

Talking to TMZ, Trebek said there’s “a 50-50 (chance), maybe a little less” that he stays on as host past the end of his contract in 2020.
Trebek is 78-years-old and he’s been hosting Jeopardy since 1984. When asked who could replace him, Trebek brought up two names; Alex Faust who does play-by-play for the Los Angeles Kings and attorney Laura Coates. Coates is an African American woman who Trebek said “appears on cable news from time to time.”
