Tom Kennedy (born James Narz February 16, 1927, in Louisville, Kentucky) is a television game show host who had his greatest fame in the 1960s and 1970s. He is the brother of game show host Jack Narz, and changed his name to avoid confusion prior to hosting his first national show, The Big Game, in 1958.
His biggest hit series were You Don't Say! , which aired on NBC from 1963 to 1969, Name That Tune, which he hosted from 1974 to 1981, and Password Plus, which he hosted from 1980 to 1982 following the death of original host Allen Ludden. Other hosting credits include Break the Bank, Body Language, Split Second , and a syndicated version of The Price is Right (an honor he shares with Doug Davidson).
He also briefly hosted a talk show in the late 1970s.
