This game show host won’t be retiring quite yet.
Who is Alex Trebek? Rumors that the longstanding host of “Jeopardy” will leave the show in 2016 once his contract expires have grown increasingly intense lately, prompting the trivia king to step forth with a denial of his own.
As Trebek told the Times:

"Everybody’s speculating on my retirement and I don’t know why. It’s silly. Somebody asked me if I’ve given any thoughts to retiring. Well, yes, I’ve given thoughts to retiring, for crying out loud. I’ve been doing the show for 29 years. Why wouldn’t I think about retiring? Everybody assumes from my having said that, that he’s retiring. Well, no. I’ve been thinking about it. So allow me to think about it."

But Trebek will leave the show eventually, something he also spoke to the Times about:

"I hope I’ll be hard to replace. That would be a good thing for my legacy. But anybody can be replaced. I can be replaced."
