We just lost another TV legend this year: the host of Jeopardy since 1984, Alex Trebek.  Alex Trebek was a great guy.  That’s according to my dad, Jerry Fogel (another late TV and movie legend we lost recently.  My dad and Trebek had worked together and my dad had nothing but good things to say.  He would tell me stories of ribbing Alex Trebek about doing Jeopardy forever.  In truth, I respect how long he’s been doing it for, being an admirable TV icon the whole time!  R.I.P. Alex Trebek.  There will never be another TV host like you.
