Jeopardy's legendary host Alex Trebek has just announced he has stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Trebek, who has hosted the long-running game show since 1984, revealed in a video posted on Jeopardy's official YouTube channel. Trebek stated, 

 I was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Now normally, the prognosis for this is not very encouraging, but I’m going to fight this, and I’m going to keep working. And with the love and support of my family and friends and with the help of your prayers also, I plan to beat the low survival rate statistics for this disease. 

Trebek also told fans he will continue on with the show until the season is over. Watch Trebek's announcement below:
