Yesterday afternoon it was reported that Ken Ober, best known as the host of MTV's Remote Control, died on Sunday at the age of 52. The cause of death hasn't been announced, but his agent has come out with some details, saying: "His body was discovered in his home. The last person to have spoken to him was on Saturday morning. No foul play is suspected, no suicide, it looks like natural causes, just no one knows the exact cause yet."
Ober's manager Lee Kernis told the NY Times that "he spoke to a friend and complained of a headache and flu-like symptoms" on Saturday — saying that he would take something and see a doctor as soon as possible.
Adam Sandler, who appeared on Remote Control, told MTV News: "Ken Ober was one of the sharpest, quickest, sweetest guys I ever me. He was always a great friend and I will miss him very much." Denis Leary also got his start on the show, and released a statement saying: "Kenny Ober was and always will be the quickest wit in the room... a smart, fast and hilarious human being who made many of us, including myself, laugh until we cried. As the star and host of Remote Control, he was a welcoming ringmaster who helped to kickstart the careers of numerous talents, including Adam Sandler, Colin Quinn and myself. He will be remembered always by each of his friends not only for his massive talent but for his true, deep and enduring friendship."
