Downs, who also served as Jack Paar’s announcer/sidekick for five years on The Tonight Show and hosted the game show Concentration for almost a decade, died Wednesday at his home in Scottsdale, Arizona, his family said in a statement.

Dave, let's not overlook the fact that Hugh served as Jack Paar's sidekick on The Tonight Show, and hosted the game show Concentration.  batEyes

This is not a name I've heard in a while. This was back when news reporting was just that.
