As of 2015, Alex Trebek makes over $10 million per year. Trebek's contract establishes him as host of "Jeopardy!" through 2018, though he has said he'd like to host as long as the job is fun.
Trebek, who has been the host of "Jeopardy!" since the show relaunched in 1984, is considered one of the best hosts in game show history. However, at the age of 74, producers are preparing for Trebek to step down at some point. Potential successors include Matt Lauer and Anderson Cooper. In 2013, these rumors led Trebek to joke that he would gladly take Lauer's job as the host of "Today."
