Comedian Ken Ober died of a heart attack over the weekend at the age of 52. Read more on Ken Ober’s death below.

Ken Ober was the host of the MTV game show “Remote Control”, and was found dead this weekend. There were rumors of Ober’s death but sadly it turned out to be true.

Ken Ober was last heard from on Saturday night when he told a friend he felt he was suffering from flu-like symptoms.

Ken Ober was a huge fan of game hosts and went on to host four game shows of his own, including a newer version of “Make Me Laugh” in 1997. But his huge break came after he was a contestant on the televised talent show “Star Search,” and went on to host the MTV series “Remote Control” in 1987.

Van Toffler, the president of MTV Networks, said on Monday, “Ken was a great guy. His personality really brought ‘Remote Control’ to life, as well as a new style of programming for MTV. We were really flying by the seat of of our pants then, and Ken was the reason it worked.”

In more recent years, Ken Ober worked as a producer on comedy series such as “Mind of Mencia” and “The New Adventures of Old Christine.”

Our condolences to the friends and family of  Ken Ober.
