It was sad to read of the passing of “Jeopardy” host Alex Trebek, who died of pancreatic cancer. I have watched “Jeopardy” for over 30 years, and found Alex Trebek the nicest game show host.
My wife Eva and I had the opportunity to attend five of his shows that were taped at Madison Square Gardens about 25 years ago. During the intermission he took part in a question-and-answer session, and I asked him how one becomes a contestant.
He was delighted to answer, and told me where to send my inquiry. He was a most friendly person to talk to.
