The consummate game show host.  He will be missed.

RIP Alex Trebek
It's a sad day, the end of an era. I can celebrate that at least some of my children had the joy of sitting around the dinner table listening to him every night, but lament that some of them will never get the experience. Whoever steps into his role (I strongly expect Ken Jennings) will have huge shoes to fill.

Jeopardy will never be the same.
They say he died from Pancratic Cancer. He was 80 years old to. He really did not look his age.

He announced his cancer diagnosis quite a while ago, so this didn't actually come as much of a surprise.  He had the rare gift of sounding extremely intelligent without appearing condescending or pedantic, and always seemed to be genuinely interested in the person with whom he was conversing, whether it was a contestant or someone interviewing him.  I haven't watched Jeopardy in years, but I feel like the world's a little less bright with the loss of the light of his presence in our society.

He comes from a dying breed in Hollywood of having both brains and class.

How do you think the person who replaces him MCs Jeopardy next will feel the first game?

*sad chuckle*

The next host will probably feel really nervous.
