NEW YORK (AP) — A spokeswoman says “Jeopardy!” host Alex Trebek is “up and about” in a Los Angeles hospital as he recovers from a mild heart attack.
Sony Pictures Television spokeswoman Paula Askanas said Monday that Trebek is “in good spirits” while doctors complete their tests. She says he has been moved to a regular room.
The 71-year-old Trebek was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Saturday. He’s expected to fully recover and be back at work when “Jeopardy!” resumes production for a new season in July.
Trebek was hospitalized for a heart attack in 2007. He has been hosting the popular quiz show for 28 years.
