    Six weeks ago, “Jeopardy!” host Alex Trebek announced that he had been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

    In a video posted online, Trebek, 78, said he was sharing the news “in keeping with my longtime policy of being open and transparent with our ‘Jeopardy!’ fan base.”

    Now, in a new video posted Wednesday afternoon, Trebek said that “despite what you may have heard, I’m feeling good, I’m continuing with my therapy,” and that he plans to host season 36 of “Jeopardy!” when the show returns this fall.
