Classic game show host Tom Kennedy died last week at age 93. He hosted You Don't Say, Name That Tune, Split Second, among others.
Wikipedia page hasn't been updated yet to reflect his passing. His brother was Jack Narz, also an accomplished game show host, and his sister was married to Bill Cullen.

You Don't Say was regular summer fare at CasaSprotsMom. I don't remember much of it, I was pretty young. One clip I do remember was Rose Marie and her partner in crime -- Morey Amsterdam? -- put their hands over Kennedy's mouth and did the ending: "It's not what you say that counts, it's what you don't say." Obviously very memorable. To me, anyway.
