Svengoolie and me at Flashback Weekend

Horror-movie host Rich Koz, better known as Svengoolie, is recovering after a heart attack Saturday.

“Rich’s condition is improving and his family has asked for privacy at this time,” said a press release from Weigel Broadcasting Co., which airs Koz’s show locally on WCIU-TV and nationally on Me-TV network.

Koz is a Chicago native and graduate of Maine East High School and Northwestern University.

Friends and fans of Svengoolie are being directed to send cards, if they wish to do so, to Rich Koz care of WCIU The U, 26 North Halsted, Chicago, IL 60661.

Koz previously suffered a heart attack in 2002, according to Time Out.
