Alex Trebek

George Alexander "Alex" Trebek (pronounced /trɨˈbɛk/; born July 22, 1940) has been the host of the game show Jeopardy! since 1984, and prior to that, he hosted game shows such as Pitfall and High Rollers. He has appeared in numerous television series, usually as himself. A native of Canada, he became a naturalized United States citizen in 1998. Trebek was born in Sudbury, Ontario, the son of Lucille (née Lagacé, which was the name of the street he grew up on), a Franco-Ontarian, and George Edward Trebek, a Ukrainian immigrant. He was educated at a Jesuit school before graduating from Toronto's Malvern Collegiate Institute in 1958, and later the University of Ottawa with a degree in philosophy. As a student at the University of Ottawa, he was a member of the English Debating Society. Interested in a career in broadcast news, he began his broadcasting career working for the CBC as a newscaster and sportscaster.
