Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek is hinting that his ongoing battle with pancreatic cancer could force him to step away from the popular game show.
Trebek spoke candidly in a Friday interview with Canada’s CTV television network, saying his chemotherapy treatments are starting to affect his speech.
“I talk to the producers about this all the time now. I say, ‘Look, I’m slurring my words. My tongue doesn’t work as much, as well as it used to. The chemo has caused sores inside my mouth. It makes it difficult for me to speak and enunciate properly,’” he explained.
