'Jeopardy!' host Trebek suffers mild heart attack
NEW YORK (AP) — ‘‘Jeopardy!’’ host Alex Trebek is in a Los Angeles hospital recovering from a mild heart attack.
Sony Television spokeswoman Paula Askanas said Sunday that Trebek was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Saturday. She says the 71-year-old Trebek is expected to fully recover and be back giving answers when ‘‘Jeopardy!’’ resumes production on a new season in July.
While he was in the hospital on Saturday, ‘‘Jeopardy!’’ won a Daytime Emmy award for best game show.
Trebek has been hosting ‘‘Jeopardy!’’ for 28 years.
