The Joker's Wild - Announcers

Announcers

Johnny Jacobs, a longtime friend of host Jack Barry, was the original announcer of The Joker's Wild. Jacobs served through most of its CBS run, with Johnny Gilbert, Roy Rowan, Marc Summers and other announcers of CBS programs filling in for Jacobs on occasion. When the series returned to first-run syndication in 1977, Jacobs, Gilbert, and Jay Stewart alternated the primary announce position. Stewart became the exclusive announcer for The Joker's Wild (as well as for all Barry & Enright-produced game shows at the time) during the 1979–1980 season; Bob Hilton announced for the final three months of the 1979–80 season and Art James announced for most of the 1980–1981 season, with Stewart returning to announce for the final three months of the 1980–81 season as well as substituting for James during the 1980 Tournament of Champions. In 1981 Stewart was replaced as Barry & Enright lead announcer by Charlie O'Donnell, who announced for the remainder of the series' run. Johnny Gilbert and John Harlan filled in for O'Donnell on occasion.

Ed MacKay, a local Los Angeles radio DJ and one-time overnight news anchor at KNX radio, announced the 1990–1991 revival.
