Howie Mandel to host Game Show Awards

Ceremony airs on GSN June 6

Howie Mandel has been tapped to host GSN's Game Show Awards.

The two-and-a-half-hour ceremony, which airs on the cable network June 6, will honor classic and contemporary game shows, with tributes to pioneers Bob Barker ("The Price is Right"), game show producer Mark Goodson, and host/producer Monty Hall ("Let's Make a Deal").

"I want the Game Show Awards to be unlike any awards show on television," Mandel said.

"I am trying to convince GSN to hire four co-hosts for the night. We'll see what happens," he quipped, referring to the ill-fated experiment at last year's primetime Emmy Awards which was hosted by the five nominated reality hosts, including Mandel.

Mandel was nominated for his hosting duties on NBC's game show "Deal or No Deal."

He also hosts and exec produces NBC's hidden camera show "Howie Do It."
