Now on to a class act. Syndication veteran Roger King’s funeral service was held yesterday in Palm Beach at Donald Trump’s Mar-a Lago resort.
King suffered a stroke on Friday at his home in Boca Raton, Fla. and died the next day. King will be buried on Saturday.
Among those who paid their last respects included Oprah Winfrey and Phil McGraw – both of which owed their successful careers to King – as well as Inside Edition’s Deborah Norville, former American Journal host Nancy Glass, Rolonda Watts, CBS boss Les Moonves, Viacom boss Sumner Redstone, Rachael Ray, Wheel of Fortune’s Pat Sajak and Vanna White, and Mr. Food himself, Art Ginsburg (whose one minute segments were syndicated by King World for many years.)
Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek was not able to make it, as he suffered a minor hearttatck Monday night, which has left him hospitalized.
