Speaking Monday to Harvey Levin for Fox News Channel's OBJECTified, the 78-year-old Trebek said the odds are 50/50, "and a little less", he won't return to the game show he's hosted since 1984 when his contract expires in 2020. "It wouldn't be a big hardship for Johnny Gilbert say, 'and now, here's the host of Jeopardy, Alex Not Trebek..." Faust, a native of Brooklyn, NY, was handpicked to replace Bob Miller, the Hall of Fame broadcaster who called 44 seasons for the Kings. The 78-year-old even went so far as to suggest two replacements, National Hockey League announcer Alex Faust and CNN legal analyst Laura Coates.

A former Assistant United States Attorney for the District of Columbia, Coates has hosting experience with her SiriusXM show "The Laura Coates Show". "She's African-American and she appears some of the cable news shows from time to time".

"Just heard Alex Trebek is going to retire from Jeopardy and honestly I knew this day was going to come, but I wasn't prepared", another user tweeted. On Twitter, Coates also voiced her thanks and said Jeopardy! is her "fave game show ever" before adding she grew up watching it and continues to enjoy the show with her children.
