1010 WINS- Television game show host Alex Trebek has revealed that following recent surgery, the 77-year-old will be going on medical leave from the long-running hit show Jeopardy! in order to take time to properly recover.

Trebek appeared in a video on the Jeopardy Facebook page Thursday to announce that he'd had the surgery during the show's holiday break.

He was back home two days after the surgery. As a result, he developed a complication in his brain called a subdural hematoma, which doctors discovered around mid-December 2017.

The show's producer, Sony Pictures Entertainment, said in a statement that Trebek was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on December 15 and underwent surgery the following day.

"The prognosis is excellent and I expect to be back in the studio taping more 'Jeopardy!' programs very, very soon", he said.

"He is expected to make a full and complete recovery", the Sony statement said, per NBC News. The only affected episodes will be the College Championship, which will now air in April, but the rest of the Jeopardy! schedule won't be affected.

He added: "And I want to thank all of you for your concern".
