He will appear occasionally thereafter, the network said.
It is unclear if Shep did appear. He was not mentioned as a cast member in the IMDB or Wikipedia listings. The show was cancelled December 29, 1961, so there was a chance he appeared over the 10 month period The show ran on N.B.C. daytime from June 30, 1958 to December 29, 1961.
