We’ve got some sad news for you tonight. Charlie O’Donnell, best known as announcer of Wheel of Fortune, died Halloween night in his sleep. Caught word of this from Facebook, I didn’t believe it, but it was true. You can learn more about it here.
“Charlie O”, as he’s affectionately known by game show fans, did a lot of work. He started off with Dick Clark on American Bandstand, then went on to anchor the news at KCOP-TV in Los Angeles.
Of course, he did other shows as well. I’d like to present to you now a video resume and tribute to his work. For those of you who are curious, Johnny Gilbert (who is about a decade older than Charlie) is announcing this week.
And of course…..
Speaking of Million Dollar Wins, I hate to deviate, but it seems I was wrong. There was no Million Dollar Win last week.
Rest in peace, Chuck.
