MOLINE, Ill. — You know about WQAD's news station, but what about its spooky history?
Gene Edwards, the actor behind Dr. Igor, also played Jungle Jay for a kid-friendly afternoon show. No footage remains of these two characters, but they are fondly remembered by those who watched in the 1960s.
Dr. Igor is the third Quad Cities-based horror host to be nominated for the Horror Host Hall of Fame. Chuck Acri of "The Acri Creature Feature" and Marlena Midnight of "Midnight Mausoleum" have already been inducted.
Watch"Midnite Mausoleum" at 11 Saturday nights on MyTV 8-3.
Anyone can vote for the hall of fame inductees, but you can only vote once. To vote, email your top five horror hosts from this list to TheHorrorHostHallofFame@gmail.com. Voting ends on Aug. 5.
