RIP Mike Bongiorno
Mike Bongiorno has died. The King of Italy's TV hosts since the 1950s, was born in New York on May 26, 1924, had a heart attack around noon today while he was in Monte Carlo. Nothing could have predicted his death, the popular television host left yesterday morning from Milan, to spend a short vacation in Monte Carlo before diving into a new television adventure, a quiz show on the Sky Network, that would have brought back the lucky series "Rischiatutto". Mike Bongiorno appeared in one European western 1972's "They Call Me Providence" as Mike Goodmorning.
