LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Comedian and musician Steve Allen, who was the first host of NBC's Tonight Show, has died, a spokesman said. He was 78.
Spokesman Kevin Sasaki said Allen died of a possible heart attack during a visit to his son's home to see his grandchildren.
Once called television's man for all seasons, Allen was celebrated for his quick wit, horn-rimmed glasses and for his song-writing skills. Among his 4,000 songs were This Could Be the Start of Something Big and Impossible.
