“Press Your Luck” Host Dead

Peter Tomarken
The brotherhood of game show hosts lost a key personality Monday when Peter Tomarken, ringmaster of the 1980s hit Press Your Luck, was killed along with his wife and two others when a plane he was piloting went down off the coast of Los Angeles Monday. Tomarken was 63.

SP.net sends out its thoughts and prayers to the Tomarken family. Press Your Luck was a favorite of mine growing up and will forever be one of my all time favorite game shows. If you’re around tonight, the Game Show Network will be re-airing their documentary on the Press Your Luck Scandal tonight (Tuesday) at 10 PM. Check your local listings…

One more book to go…
