Ken Ober found dead at home

Ken Ober dead at 52

Ken Ober, the former host of the MTV quiz show Remote Control, was found dead at his Los Angeles home.  No cause of death was given for the host turned producer.  The MTV show helped to jump start the careers of Adam Sandler, Colin Quin, and Denis Leary.  If you are my age you remember this show and that it was MTVs first real attempt to do something outside of music videos – who thought that would last?  Ober had gone on to work behind the camera on Mind of Mencia and New Adventures of Old Christine.
