Who was the first host of the game show “Family Feud”?
Richard Dawson was the original host of the popular game show “Family Feud.” Dawson had been a fixture on U.S. game shows for years before “Family Feud” debuted on ABC in 1976, most notably as a regular panelist on CBS’s revival of “Match Game.” His trademark as the Feud’s host was planting a smooch on the female contestants, a practice that the producers often attempted to discourage but with little success. Dawson’s tenure as the host lasted until 1985, with a brief return during the 1990s. His contribution to the show’s format and his unique hosting style left an indelible mark on the show’s legacy.
The correct answer is Richard Dawson.
