NEW YORK (CBS NEWS) - Alex Trebek, the host of the long-running TV quiz show “Jeopardy!,” was admitted into Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Saturday after suffering a “mild heart attack.”

The Hollywood Reporter writes that Trebek, 71, is currently under observation and undergoing further tests. A statement released Sunday by Sony Pictures Television reads that Trebek is in good spirits and “is expected to fully recover and be back at ‘Jeopardy!’ when production begins taping in July.”

The show will be entering its 29th season. Trebek has hosted “Jeopardy!” since 1984. Here in the DFW area, viewers can watch “Jeopardy!” weekdays at 11:00 a.m. on CBS 11 or at 6:00 p.m. on TXA 21.
