Brief bio on Ralph Edwards, via Wikipedia:

Ralph Livingstone Edwards (June 13, 1913 – November 16, 2005) was an American radio and television host and television producer.


In 1940, Edwards created the game show "Truth or Consequences," which aired for 38 years on radio and television. Contestants were asked to perform (often ridiculous) stunts for prizes of cash or merchandise.

Truth or Consequences, New Mexico was named after the show following Edwards’ promise to broadcast the show from the first city that renamed itself. The city in southern New Mexico features several public parks and facilities that bear his name. Beginning in 1950 and continuing for the next 50 years, Edwards traveled to that city during the first weekend of May every year.
