Alex Trebek thanks fans for support after heart attack

Alex Trebek is expected to resume taping "Jeopardy"

"Jeopardy!" host Alex Trebek was home recuperating from a heart attack he suffered over the weekend.

“I am happy to report that Alex has been released from the hospital and is back at his home. On his behalf, thank you again for your good wishes," a Sony spokeswoman said in a statement.

Trebek was stricken Saturday in Los Angeles. That evening, "Jeopardy!" was named best game show at the Daytime Emmy Awards in Beverly Hills.

Trebek is expected to make a full recovery and he should be on the set when the show begins taping its 29th season in July.

 

Trebek also suffered a heart attack in 2007. He took several weeks off and then resumed taping "Jeopardy!"
