Why not radio game shows?

Before television, as I understand it, there were game shows on the radio. My question is, why have they gone away? Apparently people love game shows so much that they can still hit it big on prime time television, and there’s even a whole channel devoted to them.

When you think about it, on a lot of these shows there’s not a lot to see. I think Jeopardy! would be just as much fun on the radio as it is on television. Any sort of quiz show where you could play along would translate pretty well to radio, I think. For people on long drives, especially when multiple people are in the car (ex. a family vacation), I think that would be huge. Someone get on it.
