Longtime Gameshow Host Jack Narz Dead at 85

Jack Narz passed away yesterday from complications of a stroke in an LA Hosptial at the age of 85.

He was extremely well known for hosting game shows like I'll Bet, Now You See It and the remake of Concentration, but he was probably best known for being the host of Dotto during the quiz show scandal in 1958 where his show (and others) were caught feeding the answers to contestants. 

Narz was born Nov. 13, 1922, in Louisville, Ky. He served as a military pilot during World War II. He was the brother of veteran game show host Tom Kennedy and is also survived by his sister Mary Lovett Scott, wife Delores "Dodo" Vaiksnor, his 4 children, 6 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren.
