“Hi everyone, I just want to take a few moments to say thanks to the – believe it or not – hundreds of thousands of people who have sent in tweets, texts, emails, cards and letters wishing me well following my recent health announcement.” Trebek began.

‘I’ve heard from former contestants – even Watson, the IBM computer, sent me a get-well card,” the Jeopardy! host said.

Trebek expressed, “Now obviously, I won’t be able to respond to all of you individually, but I do want you to know that I do read everything I receive.”

“And I am thankful for the kind words, the prayers and the advice you have offered, and I’m extremely touched by the warmth you have expressed in your comments to me. I’m a lucky guy,” Trebek concluded.
