1000 Words

This week in Hollywood Goes Fishing we feature a photo ca. 1970 of Ralph Edwards (1913-2005). Edwards was involved in radio from the very beginning and became a noted announcer in the 1930s, introducing the Major Bowles show among others. In 1940 he became involved with Truth or Consequences, a game show that would air for the next 38 years and which would make him a household name. While there he founded the famed Jimmy Fund, a cancer-research charity adopted by the Boston Red Sox. Edwards would later go on to produce numerous other tv shows, including The People's Court.

He was a lifelong angler.
