PRICE IS RIGHT, TV Legend, Bob Barker To Retire This Year
eOne of TV's most beloved legends is going to retire this year, Bob Barker, who will turn 83 this December. This enduring game show host has taped 6,482 episodes of THE PRICE IS RIGHT, a game show that has outlived so many other morning game shows. For 35 years, THE PRICE IS RIGHT has had top notch morning TV ratings, an amazing feat.
Bob Barker was not only a great game show host, but a great friend of animals. In 1987, he quit as host of the Miss USA and Universe beauty pageant when they refused to stop giving away the fur of innocent animals as prizes. Mr. Barker was willing to put principles above his work for the sake of the life of animals, and such a selfless nature endures him as a decent man of great conviction. Bob Barker is a vegetarian, and his diet speaks well for his enduring nature despite some health episodes a few years ago.
Bob Barker is a real legend on morning TV game shows. He'll be greatly missed.
