when the users of a game show message board see a Winner's Circle–esque thread title like "Jewish Game Show Hosts," they immediately go into list-giving mode.

Going back in time, we had Robert Q Lewis, Larry Blyden and Bobby Van. According to Wiki, Art James was born to Russian immigrants.
My grandfather was a Russian immigrant, so Art may very well have been Jewish like me...but I have plenty of names here to help out my friend. Thanks, everybody.

Ken Ober (one of his first jobs was at a Jewish supermarket) and Mark L. Walberg.

Oh yeah, and Chuck Barris.

Was Gary Owens Jewish? I didn't know that. One name we're missing (unless I messed it) is Hal March

Was Gary Owens Jewish?
Wiki says his birth name was Gary Altman, and his mother's maiden name was Clark. It didn't mention any Jewish heritage.
