HORROR HOSTS PAST AND PRESENT

Horror hosts are a particular type of television presenter, often tasked with presenting low-grade films to television audiences.

In the early days of television, stations needed programming, and local stations frequently produced their own shows in-house, covering the gamut from children's fare to serious drama. Due to the expense of preproducing to film, many early television shows were broadccast live, and stations needed personalities to introduce shows, as well as read commercials and station IDs. Most stations used booth announcers, but a number of shows - in particular those using cartoons or movies - used an on-camera host or hostess to perform those functions.

Hosts were often plucked from the ranks of the studio staff. In the days of live television, it wasn't uncommon for the weather man or booth announcer to finish a nightly news broadcast and race madly to another part of the soundstage for a quick costume change to present the evening's monster tale.

The impact of these friendly ghouls on their young fans cannot be underestimated. The earliest hosts are still remembered with great affection today.

Here is a partial list of some current and past Horror Hosts. More will be added soon.
