Merv Griffin; 1925 - 2007

via CNN:
Merv Griffin, the entertainer turned impresario who parlayed his "Jeopardy" and "Wheel of Fortune" game shows into a multimillion-dollar empire, has died. He was 82.

Griffin died of prostate cancer, according to a statement from his family that was released by Marcia Newberger, spokeswoman for The Griffin Group/Merv Griffin Entertainment.
Merv changed the face of TV, especially daytime TV. I remember the original Jeopardy, and all but block my phone at 4:30 when the current show airs.
