Game Show Host: JACK NARZ

Veteran radio/TV broadcaster and game show host Jack Narz died Wednesday, October 15, 2008. Mr. Narz passed away at his Beverly Hills home after suffering from complications from serious strokes. He was 85 years old.

Born John William Narz, Jr. in Louisville, Ky. on November 13, 1922, Narz trained for a career in broadcasting at a school in Southern, California following his services in US Army Air Corps during WWII. He joined radio station KXO as an announcer and, after working there for a time, made his TV debut doing plugs for a men's clothing store "Barr's."

He also did narrations for two episodes of The Adventures Of Superman - 'Superman On Earth' and 'The Unknown People' (an edited version of the theatrically released feature film pilot Superman & The Mole Men). He also did the announcing on TV variety shows which lead to his becoming the MC of Dotto.

The show, where contestants had to connect the dots on an electronically controlled game board to create the image of a famous person, came to a halt when one of the contestants discovered his opponent was rehearsed with answers to the questions.

This gentleman was outraged and angrily contacted the NYC D.A.'s office and the police. After a thorough investigation and a full scale series of hearings in both NYC and later in Washington, Dotto, The $64,000 Question, The $64,000 Challenge, Tic Tac Dough and 21 were cancelled and those involved suffered the consequences of their acts.

Jack Narz was investigated by the federal authorities but somehow he was not indicted for any involvement with the game show riggings. "Jack told me that it was the most frightening time of his career," recalled Prof. Steve Beverly, a broadcasting history instructor at Union University in Jackson, Tennessee and a game show buff. "It didn't take a genius to know that this was going to be a major black mark for television, he wondered whether he would ever work in television again".

Luckily, Mr. Narz was found innocent of the scandals and he would return to hosting other game shows like Top Dollar, Seven keys, Video Village, I'll Bet,the 1970's syndicated version of Beat The Clock, Now You See It and the 1973 syndicated version of Concentration.

He also worked as a cartoon voiceover actor during the mid to late-1960's; he was the voice of the prissy cop who arrested the trouble making dog catcher "Richard Harry Nearly" (the voice of the cop was a toned down imitation of pianist Liberace) in the 'Loveable Truly' segment of The Linus The Lionhearted TV show. The series was seen on Saturday mornings on ABC and later on CBS and featured the voices of Carl Reiner, Sheldon Leonard and Ruth Buzzi.

Narz retired and his only recent TV appearances were on The American Experience on PBS which looked back at the 1958 quiz show scandals that also featured interviews with game show producers Dan Enright, Mark Goodson, Gilbert Cates and former TV game show and kid's show host Sonny Fox; Television: Our Life & Times hosted by actor Tony Randall; and Pioneers Of Television again on PBS (his last appearance).

Jack Narz' brother Jim Narz (better known to viewers as Tom Kennedy) also MC'd many games including You Don't Say, Password Plus, Split Second and the syndicated nighttime version of The Price Is Right.

Mr. Narz was also a guest on the radio talk show Stu's Show with interviewer Stuart Shostak a few years ago.
