I don't have the video, but both Around the Horn and Pardon the Interruption paid tribute to Alex in their end-segments.

Was any mention of it made on Wheel of Fortune?

The mentions were nice & heartfelt, though short, so I'm not going to bother with YT links where I was able to find today's episodes. Dan was off HQ today and AT did not get a mention.

Kelly & Ryan spoke from the heart and included a picture and clip from Alex's visit to their show. Their tribute conveyed the loss quite well in less than two minutes of host chat.

Whoopi ended The View with short remarks and only left a few seconds for Sunny to add her condolences. Ana (in the same Power Players game) was not given any time to talk about Alex.

Harvey & Charles on TMZ Live showed clips from the Alex episode of Objectified and Harvey was very sincere with his loving remarks.

KGO did a story and included memories from Bay Area contestants: https://abc7news.com/society/former-bay ... k/7789708/ (one ad before the story begins)

Surprisingly, none that I saw.

Short but very lovely tribute by Anderson Cooper at the end of his AC360 show this evening, and he announced that today's edition of his Full Circle podcast is dedicated to AT.

ETA: beautiful and very touching tribute by Chris Cuomo also. Apparently he and Alex had conversations earlier this year - I'm guessing when Cuomo had COVID-19. If you can catch it on CNN Go or a video clip, it's worth seeing, but I give a Kleenex warning.

Bonus points to Mike Thompson for not doing the all-too-common and very annoying $500 mistake. As to the lady's viewing angle to the TV? Ouch, my neck hurts just looking at it.

One more remembrance from the L.A. Times, this one more closely related to a pre-J! portion of his career:

Ruta Lee remembers Alex Trebek, her "High Rollers" cohost and "friend for life"

Yet another appreciation in the L.A. Times, this one from one of their food writers, who was a 2-day champ in 2012.

A ‘Jeopardy!’ champ remembers Alex Trebek, a steady hand when we needed it most

An article from a guy who has been told he's been selected to be a contestant at a future date: https://quillette.com/2020/11/13/farewell-alex-trebek

He mentions a fellow auditioner (and show qualifier, apparently) whose mother was a 1-time champion in 2000. I had an inkling, and believe I've more or less verified that the mother is Jeeks Rajagopal, one of two players (that I know of) whose wagering choice prevented a natural three-way tie.
