Alex Trebek Hints He's retiring from Jeopardy!
And now the big question: WHO WILL REPLACE ALEX TREBEK
The 78-year-old said the odds are 50/50 that he would continue hosting the game show after his contract expires in 2020. Trebek suggested two people as his potential replacements: Alex Faust, an announcer for the LA Kings and Laura Coates, an attorney and commentator.

I guess there are worse ways to randomly see your name show up on TMZ! 🤷🏻♂️— Alex Faust (@alex_faust) July 30, 2018
I’m flattered by Mr. Trebek’s kind words, and delighted to hear he’s a big @LAKings fan! 👑
Incredibly honored & humbled @Jeopardy Alex Trebek 1) knows who I am 2) thinks I'd be a great host of my fave game show ever that I grew up watching w/ my family & still watch w/ my own kids (who saw him say this & now think I'm a genius) #Dying https://t.co/qdMxWc9g5e via @TMZ— Laura Coates (@thelauracoates) July 30, 2018
Who would you suggest?
