Television Icon and Animal Rights Activist Bob Barker Passes Away at 99

– Bob Barker, legendary television host of “The Price Is Right,” has died at the age of 99.
– Barker was not only known for his iconic role on the game show, but also for his passionate advocacy for animal rights and his dedication to exposing cruelty in the entertainment industry.

Bob Barker, the beloved television veteran and former host of “The Price Is Right,” has passed away at the age of 99, according to ET. In a statement from Barker’s longtime publicist, Roger Neal, it was announced with profound sadness that the world has lost the “World’s Greatest MC.” Per Barker’s request, there will be no funeral or memorial service held in his honor, and he will be laid to rest next to his wife at Forest Lawn Memorial Cemetery in the Hollywood Hills. Barker’s longtime girlfriend, Nancy Burnet, expressed her pride in their trailblazing work together to expose animal cruelty in the entertainment industry.

A spokesperson for CBS, home of “The Price Is Right,” also released a statement mourning the loss of Barker and highlighting his 35-year tenure as host of the show. In addition to his legendary broadcasting career, Barker will be remembered as a dedicated animal rights activist. Daytime television has lost one of its most iconic stars.

Born in Darrington, Washington, Barker’s broadcasting career began in radio before he made a name for himself in television. He landed his first national hosting job on “Truth or Consequences” in 1953 and went on to host the show for two decades. In 1972, Barker scored another breakthrough when “The Price Is Right” premiered on CBS, becoming one of the longest-running game shows in history.

Despite his success in the industry, Barker faced personal tragedy when his high school sweetheart and wife of 35 years, Dorothy Gideon, passed away from lung cancer in 1981. Barker referred to her as his most “treasured possession” and cherished their first meeting, where she pulled out the 10 of spades from a deck of cards and said, “Here, this will be your luck.”

Bob Barker’s legacy extends beyond his television career, as he leaves behind a lasting impact as an animal rights advocate and a beloved figure in the entertainment industry.
