Alex Trebek, who hosted the game show "Jeopardy" for 37 years and became a symbol for intelligence and calm, bringing consistency and comfort into America's living rooms on a nightly basis, has passed away.  He was 80, and had been battling pancreatic cancer since March 2019.

"Jeopardy" producers said that Trebek had been taping programs until as recently as a few weeks ago, and that episodes featuring him will run until late December.  A successor has not been named.
