Pioneer Talk Show Host Paar Hospitalized
GREENWICH, Conn. – Late-night television pioneer Jack Paar has been admitted to a Connecticut hospital for an undisclosed illness.
“I can confirm he is a patient and he is in fair condition,” said George Pawlush, director of public relations at Greenwich Hospital.
USA Today reported Wednesday that Paar had suffered a stroke over the weekend.
Pawlush said Wednesday that Paar had been in the hospital for about 10 days, but could not disclose any other information.
Paar, 84, had quadruple bypass surgery in 1999.
He became host of NBC’s “The Tonight Show” in 1957. He announced that he was leaving the show in February 1960, but a month later, the network managed to lure him back. Paar left in 1962. Johnny Carson subsequently took over.
“The Jack Paar Program,” a prime-time variety show, ran from September 1962 until ’65.
