Condolences to family and friends of longtime TV game show host JACK NARZ, who died WEDNESDAY of complications of a stroke in LOS ANGELES at 81.
NARZ began his career at KXO-A/EL CENTRO, CA after serving in WORLD WAR II, working at several stations before moving to TV as an announcer for "QUEEN FOR A DAY" and "SPACE PATROL." He was the host of "DOTTO," a CBS daytime/NBC nighttime game show that was one of the first casualties of the quiz show scandals of 1958, although he was not implicated in the cheating and hosted several shows after that, including "SEVEN KEYS," "BEAT THE CLOCK," and "CONCENTRATION." His brother, TOM KENNEDY, is also a longtime game show host.
