A West Virginia native is finding success as a game show historian.  Adam Nedeff grew up in Vienna and graduated from Marshall University in 2005.  His first book has just been published.  It’s called “Quizmaster: The Life and Times and Fun and Games of Bill Cullen.” Cullen was a popular game show host, first on radio beginning in the 1940’s and ending his career on television in the 1980’s.

   Here’s Bill Cullen hosting the comedy quiz show “Walk a Mile” in 1952. A contestant named Greta is trying to explain how to make couscous.
