(WMTV/JEOPARDY!)--- Alex Trebek of Jeopardy! met with his doctors after his first round of chemotherapy sessions, and he has some good news to share with viewers.

“They are VERY happy with the way I have responded to the chemo and in fact say that I am ‘near remission.’ I want to be clear that I am not cured and not in remission, but the doctors say they have never seen such a positive response to chemo. I believe that this response is due in large part to the thoughts and prayers of all of my friends, co-workers, and the millions of fans who have been sending positive energy on my behalf.”

The full story with Alex will appear in the June 10 issues of PEOPLE Magazine. It’s available online the morning of Wednesday, May 29. It’s on newsstands and in subscribers mailboxes on Friday, May 31.

Everyone at Jeopardy! appreciates the support everyone has given Alex in the months since he announced his cancer diagnosis.

You can watch Jeopardy! weekdays at 4:30 p.m. right here on NBC15.
