Sorry for the NY Daily link; the more reliable news outlets haven't picked up the story yet.

RIP, Alex. You were one of a kind and inspired millions. I am incredibly glad to have had the opportunity to meet you (and grateful to my wife for making it happen). You played a huge role in making nerdy cool, in addition to bringing credibility back to trivia game shows.

(For Jeopardy! fans, I believe the show producers approached Jennings earlier this year and he expressed interest in taking over as host.)
