Jack Narz: 1922-2008
Television lost a legend today. Jack Narz, host of classic shows like Dotto, Seven Keys, Video Village, Beat the Clock, and Now You See It, has passed away at age 85. Stu Shostak of Shokus Radio said that Mr. Narz had suffered from two massive strokes and kidney failure in the last three weeks. Even though Narz’s last regular game show work was announcing on The All New Beat the Clock in 1979 and 1980, Narz was very appreciative of the current generation of television and game show fans, as younger fans called in during his appearance on Shostak’s online radio show last year and were eager to meet Mr. Narz during his appearances at Game Show Congresses over the last four years.
GSN will be doing a tribute to Jack Narz all next week. At 1:30PM ET, episodes of Match Game featuring Narz will run. Password episodes also featuring the late host will be shown. You can also catch Now You See It weekdays at 2:30AM ET. In honor of Narz, we found some videos of him through the years. Check our comments out for more videos also.
