Tom Kennedy (television host) - WikiMili, The Best.
Concentration, based on the children’s card game, was created by Jack Barry, Dan Enright, Robert Noah and Buddy Piper. NBC itself produced the original show; Mark Goodson and Bill Todman produced the syndicated show with Jack Narz. In 1985, Orson Bean was the host of 10 Concentration pilots.
Jack Narz is the host of the show and if I were to make a top 5 list of underestimated game show hosts, he would be near the top of it. Just like his role on Now You See It, he provides a nice amount of gentlemanly warmth and carries the game very well with his calm demeanour and is often overshadowed as host of the show because of Alex Trebek on Classic Concentration years later.
For Tom Kennedy, hosting game shows ran in the family! His older brother Jack Narz was a fellow game show host. The brothers were co-recipients of the Game Show Congress' Bill Cullen Award for Lifetime Achievement. Tom’s career started out hosting shows like “You Don’t Say,” and “Name That Tune,” but his later work included shows.
Beloved U.S. chat show host Jack Narz has died, aged 85. Narz hosted popular shows like Video Village, Seven Keys and I'll Bet throughout the 1960s. He also guest hosted 1970s hits like Concentration and Beat the Clock. But, despite his successes, many will remember Narz for the Dotto scandal in the late 1950s. The game show, which he hosted, was abruptly taken off the air in August 1958 amid.
Jack Narz's career in television spanned nearly 30 years. After the service and a short but productive stint in local radio, Narz started in television late in 1950 as announcer on early-TV classics like Space Patrol (1950) and Life with Elizabeth (1952). Moving on to host the trouble-prone Dotto (1958) and Video Village (1960), Narz worked steadily in radio and TV until achieving his biggest.
