Ken Ober, R.I.P.

By admin Published: November 16, 2009

The host of the classic game show "Remote Control" has died. Obit here. I was a pretty devoted fan of "Remote Control," the pop-culture quiz airing on MTV. (How devoted? Enough not only to be aware of Kari Wurher, but to argue that the show declined when she left.) The show had a smart-alecky quality that appealed, and Ober managed both to fit that attitude but to be likable at the same time, so the show did not feel mean. I vaguely remember meeting Ober once after the end of "Remote Control," and he was a good guy -- and happy that people still fondly recalled his work on the show. Very sorry about his passing. He was only 52.
