TV HOSTS by Kathy Wolfe

We’ve invited these people into our living room for decades. This week, Tidbits invites you to examine the details on these television hosts. • Dick Clark first gained real fame as the host of “American Bandstand” from 1957 to 1987, where many famous artists, including Prince, Jackson 5, Sonny and Cher, and Aerosmith, got their start. Clark’s first job in the broadcasting industry was at age 16 when he started as a mail clerk at a Rome, New York, radio station owned by his uncle. It didn’t take long for him to move into the relief weatherman slot. During college, Clark worked at a country music station, and after graduation, nabbed his first television host job, that of “Cactus Dick and the Santa Fe Riders,” a country music program. In later years, Clark hosted the game show “Pyramid,” and broadcast “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” live from Times Square from 1973 to 2004, when he suffered a stroke. • “Dancing with the Stars” host Tom Bergeron started out as a disc jockey at a Haverhill, Massachusetts, radio station. After appearing as a regular guest host on “Good Morning, America,” he became the host of “Hollywood Squares” in 1998, and was nominated for five Emmys. He moved on to “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” a position he held for 14 years. He’s been doing the dancing gig since 2005.

• Nearly everyone recognizes the face of Pat Sajak, “Wheel of Fortune” host since 1983. But Sajak has a long list of other accomplishments. Born Patrick Sajdak, he started as a radio newsman while still in college, along with working as a hotel desk clerk. At 22, he served in the Vietnam War as a disc jockey for the American Forces Vietnam Network. After a few gigs as a broadcaster and weatherman, Sajak took the helm at the “Wheel.” Sajak was a regular substitute host for “Larry King Live” and “Live with Regis and Kelly,” as well as hosting his own short-lived late-night talk show and a program on the Fox News Channel. He also had a stint on the daytime soap opera “Days of Our Lives.” Sajak keeps his radio roots close, hosting a syndicated radio sports talk show, as well as owning a radio station in Maryland. • Before there was Pat Sajak, there was Chuck Woolery, who was the first host of “Wheel of Fortune,” beginning in 1975. It wasn’t Woolery’s intention to host TV shows. After a stint in the U.S. Navy and a job as a salesman for Pillsbury, he headed to Nashville to form the rock band Avant Garde. After a Top 40 hit in 1968, the band recorded five records that went nowhere and became “one-hit wonders.” Merv Griffin chose Woolery to host his new game show “Wheel of Fortune,” where Woolery remained for the next six years. When the show’s ratings skyrocketed, Woolery demanded a salary increase from $65,000 a year to $500,000. His contract was not renewed and Sajak replaced him. After a two-year hiatus, Woolery began his 11 years of hosting “Love Connection,” while hosting “Scrabble” at the same time. Woolery claims that during the 2,000 episodes of “Love Connection,” 22,000 couples met, resulting in 29 marriages and 15 children. He moved on to “The Dating Game” in 1997 for three seasons, and “Lingo,” which aired from 2002 to 2007.

• Canada-born Alex Trebek has been the face of “Jeopardy” since 1984. After obtaining a degree in philosophy from the University of Ottawa, Trebek set out on a career in broadcasting, starting out with the Canadian Broadcasting Company as a newscaster and sportscaster. In 1973, at age 33, he moved to America and became the host of a new game show “The Wizard of Odds.” He moved on to “High Rollers” and “Battlestars” before the revival of “Jeopardy.” Trebek took on the hosting job of “Classic Concentration” in 1987 and “To Tell the Truth” in 1991, making history as the first person to host three game shows at the same time. Trebek is a renowned philanthropist, having donated $2 million worth of land in north Hollywood to the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy and $7.5 million to the University of Ottawa. He also funds a Leadership Award at the University to those who demonstrate community leadership. Trebek has participated in 13 USO tours, visiting American troops on several overseas military bases. In 2014, Trebek overtook Bob Barker’s record of the most gameshow episodes hosted on the same program. At that time, Trebek had hosted 6,829 episodes of “Jeopardy.” • Although Alex Trebek has gained fame as the host of “Jeopardy,” he wasn’t the first host. That honor belonged to Arthur Fleming Fazzin, better known as Art Fleming, who hosted the show from 1964 until 1974, and again for five months in 1978. After starring on Cornell University’s football and water polo teams, Fleming served in World War II as the pilot of a bomber for 3 ½ years. He already had a successful television, commercial, and film career by the time he was noticed by Merv Griffin on a television ad for ...continued Trans World Airlines.

• On May 26, 1897, the first copies of the classic vampire novel "Dracula," by Irish writer Bram Stoker, appear in London bookshops. In 1890, Stoker published his first novel, "The Snake's Pass." He would go on to publish 17 novels in all, but it was "Dracula" that eventually earned him literary fame. • On May 21, 1927, American pilot Charles A. Lindbergh lands at Le Bourget Field in Paris, successfully completing the first solo, nonstop trans-Atlantic flight. The flight of the Spirit of St. Louis between New York and Paris took 33-1/2 hours. Six men had died attempting the same flight. • On May 23, 1934, famed fugitives Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker are killed when police ambush their car near Sailes, Louisiana. They died in a two-minute fusillade of 167 bullets. • On May 25, 1935, at Forbes Field in Pittsburgh, Babe Ruth hits his 714th home run, a record for career home runs that would stand for almost 40 years. • On May 22, 1958, American singer Jerry Lee Lewis arrives in England as a newly married man, with his pretty young wife in tow. Within days, it was revealed that his new wife, Myra Gail Lewis, was actually only 13 years old and was his first cousin once-removed. • On May 27, 1972, Soviet President Leonid Brezhnev and U.S. President Richard Nixon, meeting in Moscow, sign the Strategic Arms Limitation Talks (SALT) agreements. At the time, these agreements were the most far-reaching attempts ever to control nuclear weapons. • On May 24, 1991, the critically acclaimed road movie "Thelma and Louise" debuts in theaters, stunning audiences with a climactic scene in which its two heroines drive off a cliff into the Grand Canyon in a vintage 1966 Ford Thunderbird convertible.

• Before “Jeopardy,” Art Fleming had already had a run in ABC’s series “International Detective,” and an NBC Western “The Californians.” In addition to 5,000 episodes of television programs, Fleming appeared in 48 movies. During his entire run of “Jeopardy,” Fleming never missed a single taping. • “You might be a redneck” if you know much about stand-up comedian and host Jeff Foxworthy. This Georgia-born TV personality started out with a degree in computer technology and a job at IBM. Making people laugh became more important than the job, and he turned in his resignation. His hosting duties have included “Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader?”, “The American Bible Challenge,” and “The American Baking Competition.” He’s the largest-selling comedy recording artist in history as well as the author of 26 books. Yet he takes time out each week to lead a Bible study with homeless men, a group that started out with 15 members, and has grown to more than 100. • Can you name all six of the hosts of the game show “Family Feud”? The program debuted in 1976 with Richard Dawson at the helm, where he remained until 1985. After a three-year hiatus, Ray Combs stepped in as host in 1988, and remained until 1994. Dawson then came back for a single season. Tragically, Combs committed suicide in 1996, in the process of being treated for depression. After another pause in production, comedian Louie Anderson took over, hosting from 1999 until 2002, when “Home Improvement” star Richard Karn replaced Anderson. John O’Hurley was next in line when Karn departed in 2006. O’Hurley hosted until 2010 when current host Steve Harvey joined the show. Since Harvey took over, ratings have increased dramatically, moving the show into the top five most popular syndicated TV shows in America.

• Peacock started production of V8 in the mid-1930s, catering primarily to the New England states. But by 1938, he just couldn’t keep up with the demand, manufacturing it all entirely on his own. He sold the recipe to an Indiana firm, the Loudon Packing Company, who took over the processing. • Another change came along in 1943, when Loudon sold out to Standard Brands for $3 million. Five years later, when gross annual sales were nearing $5 million, V8 was sold to the Campbell’s Soup Company, who still owns the V8 brand today. The recipe, which is 87% tomato juice, remains the same. Campbell’s has expanded the vegetable line to include spicy hot, lemon, picante, and roasted chicken. An 8-oz. serving contains 60 calories. Compare this to 112 calories for the same amount of orange juice or 110 calories in apple juice. • A study by the Centers for Disease Control reveals that only about 25% of Americans eat enough of the recommended allowance of vegetables – 2.5 cups daily.

• Another V8 ingredient, watercress, is a fast-growing aquatic plant, one of the oldest-known leaf vegetables. It’s related to the mustard plant, radish, and wasabi. Watercress, a plant with hollow stems, is 95% water, and is exceptionally rich in Vitamin K, necessary for the body’s blood coagulation. • Although we think of parsley primarily as a garnish or decoration on the dinner plate, it’s actually a good source of folic acid, Vitamins A and C, and antioxidants lycopene and beta carotene. • W. G. Peacock probably didn’t know about all the health benefits of celery juice, including its strong anti-inflammatory properties. Its nutrients also seem to help lower high blood pressure, and well as a treatment for kidney stones. Its high levels of electrolytes also seem to contribute to increased relaxation and restful sleep. • There have been several well-known advertising slogans over the years. In the 1960s, the catchphrase was “Wow, it sure doesn’t taste like tomato juice!”, which was expanded in later decades to include “Drink V8 & Keep Your Diet Straight,” and “Drink it. Feel it.” The familiar “I could have had a V8” was introduced in the 1980s.


• Back in 1933, W.G. Peacock, the founder of the New England Products Company, was manufacturing individual vegetable juices, using the brand name of Vege-min. His sales were less-than-desirable, so Mr. Peacock began experimenting with blending various juices together into one. He combined eight different vegetable juices – beets, celery, carrots, lettuce, parsley, watercress, spinach, and tomato – and called his concoction Vege-min 8.” An Evanston, Illinois, grocer recommended that Peacock abbreviate it to the simpler V8.


“Wow, I could have had a V8!” goes the familiar advertising slogan. This week, Tidbits has the details about this longstanding beverage.

• V8 isn’t all about vegetables these days. The company has introduced three spin-offs – V8 Energy, V8 Splash, and V8 V-Fusion. The energy drinks add 80 mg. of caffeine from green tea to a fruit and vegetable blend. The V-Fusion line has added a few different vegetables – sweet potatoes, squash, yellow tomatoes, and purple carrots – to a variety of fruits juices, including acai berries. The acai is a one-inchlong purplish fruit from the acai palm tree, native to Central and South America, and richer in antioxidants than several other berries.

Of Grand Forks • East Grand Forks by Samantha Weaver

• It was noted Spanish filmmaker Luis Bunuel who made the following sage observation: "Age is something that doesn't matter, unless you are a cheese." • You might be surprised to learn that we call coffee beans aren't actually beans -- they're the pits of the coffee beans. • Would you believe me if I told you that there were parachutists (better known now as skydivers) before there were airplanes? Yep, it's true! In Paris in the year 1900, a man leaped from the Eiffel Tower and made a safe descent using a parachute. It wasn't until December 17, 1903, that the Wright Brothers made the first controlled, sustained powered flight in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. • According to statisticians, about 200 people a year die while watching -- not playing -- football. • Of all the stamps that have been used by the U.S. Postal Service, more have featured George Washington than any other person; so far there have been 305 with the likeness of the nation's first president. • If you ever make a trip to Alaska, you might want to keep in mind the fact that it is illegal there to wake a sleeping bear for the purpose of taking its picture. • We don't often associate museums with beverages, but it seems that they're fairly popular throughout the world. For instance, museums dedicated to coffee and/or tea can be found in London, Moscow, Paris, Sao Paolo, Zurich and Kyoto, as well as in China, South Korea, Colombia and Angola. Germany has three of them. Coffee and tea must be quite popular in the Netherlands; museums dedicated to the beverages can be found there in five different cities. *** Thought for the Day: "Testing can show the presence of errors, but not their absence." -- Edsger Wybe Dijkstra © 2018 King Features Synd., Inc.
