Ralph Edwards dies; created 'Truth,' 'Life'

16 November 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Ralph Edwards, the radio and TV pioneer who created such enduring programs as This Is Your Life and Truth or Consequences, died Wednesday of heart failure at his home in West Hollywood. He was 92. Edwards died shortly after 9 a.m. Wednesday in his sleep, surrounded by family members, according to a statement issued by Ralph Edwards Prods. Edwards was well known as the host of This Is Your Life, which debuted on radio in the 1940s and moved to TV in 1952 for a nine-season run on NBC. He later hosted a syndication version from 1971-73. This month, ABC and Fox Television Studios announced plans to revive Life as a series of specials next year, this time with Regis Philbin as host. In later years, Edwards' production company was the home of the syndicated hit that launched the court show genre, The People's Court, with retired Judge Joseph Wapner presiding from 1981-93. »
