Bob Barker – Come On Down And Celebrate

Another celebrity birthday during the “Frog Days of Fall”. Today one of the most successful TV game show hosts, Bob Barker is 88 years old. I remember as a kid watching him host “Truth or Consequences”, a TV game show that allowed Barker to use his quick wit and comic skills. It was a show not about winning money or big prizes, but a fun show with stunts and gags, and very funny.

Of Course, Bob Barker is best known for hosting TV’s “The Price is Right” for so many years. Here’s a brief bio courtesy of Wikipedia:

“Robert William “Bob” Barker (born December 12, 1923) is a former American television game show host. He is best known for hosting CBS’s The Price Is Right from 1972 to 2007, making it the longest-running daytime game show in North American television history, and for hosting Truth or Consequences from 1956 to 1975.

Born in Washington to modest circumstances, Barker enlisted in the United States Navy on the outbreak of World War II. After working at radio stations, Barker began his game show career in 1956, hosting Truth or Consequences. From there, he hosted various game shows as well as the Miss Universe pageants. Eventually, he hosted The Price Is Right, beginning in 1972. When his wife Dorothy Jo died, Barker became an advocate for animal rights. Since then, Barker has been a long-time supporter of animal rights, and of animal-rights activism, including groups such as the United Activists for Animal Rights and the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. In 2007, Barker retired from hosting The Price Is Right after celebrating his 50-year career on television.”
