    Chicagoan Rich Koz, better known to many as "Svengoolie," suffered a heart attack over the weekend.

    "Our good friend Rich Koz experienced a cardiac event this past Saturday evening. The good news – Rich’s condition is improving," reads a post on Koz's website Monday.

    The 60-year-old, a Chicago native and graduate of Maine East High School and Northwestern University, has a history of heart trouble. He last had a heart attack in March 2002.

    News on Koz's recovery is being shared on his Facebook and Twitter accounts.
