Alex Trebek suffers mild heart attack before receiving Lifetime Achievement Daytime Emmy Award Saturday

By DiMarkco Chandler:

Alex Trebek, the 71-year-old host of Jeopardy, the nation’s number one game show, suffered a mild heart attack Saturday and has been hospitalized. Trebek was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles and is currently under close observation.

A spokeswoman for Trebek says he is expected to make a full recovery.

“Jeopardy” is scheduled to start filming its 29th season in July 2012. Yesterday, the Daytime Emmy Awards honored Alex with a lifetime Achievement Award. In addition, the game show received an award for Outstanding Game/Audience Participation Show. This award marks “Jeopardy’s” 12th win for the category in over the 38 year history of the Emmy Awards.

Trebek suffered a heart attack in 2007, but that incident proved to be mild, and the TV game host was back to work in a matter of days following the attack.

Yesterday’s award came when Trebek was recovering in the hospital.

    This article is inaccurate. Alex Trebek received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2011 Daytime Emmys. This year’s Lifetime Achievement winner was Bill Geddie.
