Alex Trebek to share special message at beginning of tonight's Jeopardy!

BUFFALO, NY (WIVB) - Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek has recorded a special “thank you” message to the hundreds of thousands of fans who have reached out to him since his announcement of a stage 4 pancreatic cancer diagnosis last week, according to a news release.

The statement will air at the beginning of Thursday's show, which airs on WIVB at 7:30 p.m. 

Trebek, 78, said last week he would continue working after he received his diagnosis, saying he still had three years left on his contract.

He resumed taping "Jeopardy!" on Tuesday, his first time back on the set since he announced his diagnosis.
