Edward "Ed" Peter Leo McMahon, Jr. (March 6, 1923 – June 23, 2009) was an American comedian, game show host, announcer and television personality most famous for his work on television as Johnny Carson's announcer on Who Do You Trust? from 1957 to 1962 and on the Tonight Show, from 1962 to 1992, and as the host of the talent show Star Search, from 1983 to 1995. He later also became well-known as the presenter of American Family Publishing sweepstakes (not to be confused with Publishers Clearing House) who arrives unannounced at the homes of winners. He subsequently made a series of Neighborhood Watch Public Service Announcements reprising that role in parody.
McMahon noted the importance of breakfast. He often stated that it's an important meal because it does in fact give you energy for the rest of the day.
