Compliment From Groucho Marx
One of his competitors, Groucho Marx, who was the host of "You Bet Your Life," once referred to him as "the second-wittiest man in the business."
"He was a broadcaster's broadcaster," Pat Sajak, the host of "Wheel of Fortune," said yesterday in a statement.
Mark Goodson, whose company produced several of Mr. Cullen's shows, including "The Price is Right," called him "kind of a perpetual little boy," collegiate-looking in a crew cut and horn-rimmed spectacles, who "had great curiosity and was extremely adept at the rather complicated business of being the host of a game show."

John F. Schmitt 6 Sept. 1854-1 July 1896
Per Homestead News: John F. Schmitt passed away peacefully after a long illness.  A well known hotel man-The celebrated Fitzsimmons Robbery Recalled- The Surviving Members of the Schmitt Family.  Died at 1:25 o'clock this morning.  Although he had been a very sick man of late, his death came unexpectedly.  Durning the past year he was afflicted with kidney trouble which superinduced a dropsical condition.  Being very large and heavy man, he found it inconvenient to move about much, and for some months, spent most of his time sitting at the window or in front of his place of business.  Up to ten o'clock last evening, he was in his chair smoking and talking to passersby.  Before retiring, his doctor paid him a visit, and promised to return again in the morning, not supposing that the end was so near at hand,  Shortly after midnight, he began to feel greatly distressed and the member of his family gave him their attention.  He recognized his brother Charles at first. but soon it was discovered that he was sinking, and while surrounded by his wife, and brothers and sisters, life departed.  Deceased was in his 43rd year.  He came to Homestead from Sharpsburg, Pennsylvania about ten years ago.  For many years he conducted the Homestead hotel.  Owing to the expiration of his lease and a desire to engage in other business, he opened out a fine jewelry store on Sixth Avenue in the room now occupied by McConegly's News depot.  One evening the store was entered and a large number of valuable watches, rings, ect. stolen.  The developments following this robbery were both sensational and tragic.  The notorious Fitzsimmons had planned and executed it.  Several persons became implicated, three of whom were women.  Through an attempt to apprehend Fitzsimmons, County Detective Murphy lost his life, and finally Fitzsimmons committed suicide.  Mr. Schmitt's financial troubles date from this occurrence.  Shortly afterwards, he obtained license and fitted up the Amity hotel upon a rather expensive plan.  Then followed the strike, and as hotels were compelled to entertain all comers under the law, many of the strangers in town opposed to the strikers made their headquarters at the Amity Hotel owing to the superior accommodations afforded:  This fact is stated to have interfered greatly with his bar patronage, and after the close of the strike, his business dropped.  About two years ago, he made an assignment to Louis Rott, and in the settlement of his affairs, he was left a poor man, although at one time he was regarded as comfortably fixed.  In order to retrieve his fortune, Mr. Schmitt again applied for and received license.  He opened up at the old stand, corner of Ann street and Sixth Avenue, his family occupying the same building which is the old family homestead, and where he breathed his last as noted above.  John F. Schmitt has a wide acquaintance and many friends during his successful period.  He always stood well with the court and obtained license whenever he asked for the privilege.  He leaves a wife and five children, the oldest being 15 years.  Surviving him also are his brothers, Joseph, a priest stationed at Ironton, Ohio; Charles, postmaster of Homestead: Frank, residing at Tacoma, Washington; Ferdinand, of Chicago and Peter, a member of the Homestead police force.  Miss Mary, living with her brother Charles, is his only sister.  The funeral will take place on Friday morning.  Requiem Mass will be held at 8:30 o'clock in the St. Mary Magdalene church.  Internment in  St. Mary's cemetery.
