Peter Marshall to Host 'West Virginia Squares'


  Longtime “Hollywood Squares” host Peter Marshall is returning to his home state for a West Virginia version of the TV game show.

The Huntington native will tape four episodes of “West Virginia Squares” at the Clay Center on Monday and Tuesday as part of Charleston’s FestivALL celebration.

The game show will feature questions about state music and history. West Virginia Public Broadcasting will film and distribute the shows to state schools.

The 88-year-old Marshall tells the Charleston Daily Mail the local game show “sounded like a fun thing to do.”

FestivALL’s website says among the celebrity squares are Wheeling native Joyce DeWitt, “America’s Got Talent” winner Landau Eugene Murphy Jr., and Charleston Mayor Danny Jones.
