"Press Your Luck" host Peter Tomarken killed in plane crash

USA Today article

For those not in the US or too young to remember it, "Press Your Luck" was a bit of a cult classic for the ridiculously gaudy "Big Board" that made up the game, and the animated Whammies that took away players' money.

That's too bad I loved Press Your Luck when I was a kid.

RIP Peter and his wife.

That is soooooooooooo sad. I liked him. He had a pretty smile. My sympathies to their kids if they had any. RIP

That was a great show! I loved it. And not surprisingly, I found Peter totally hot and sexy!
