Remember Headline Chasers


As a kid I went through being a news junkie phase which coincided with the brief run of the TV show Headline Chasers hosted by Wink Martindale with Johnny Gilbert as announcer. The show was quiz based and featured stuff “plucked from the headlines”. It only lasted a year, but I was watching it as often as possible. I still think it is a great idea for a game show that could work well on a cable news channel.
