As beloved gameshow host Alex Trebek continues to struggle with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer, the network that has been his home for 30 years is cooking up a plan to replace him.
On his podcast “Straight Shuter: Naughty But Nice,” Rob Shuter reveals what’s really going on behind the scenes of the popular show.
“Alex is 78 years old, and the show was already talking about a replacement host when he retired. Now with his health scare, that process has been accelerated,” sources told Straight Shuter.
Trebek has just three years left in his contract, but the network is refusing to take any chances, especially with his declining health.

In 2014, RadarOnline.com reported show execs were looking to replace Trebek after he threatened to quit the show. Insiders at the time said he would not renew his contract at the end of 2016.
Trebek, however, decided to keep his famed role, and when he announced his cancer diagnosis earlier this year, he made it clear he would continue working.
