After giving out prizes on "The Price is Right" for 35 years, Bob Barker will be getting a prize of his own next year. He’s going to retire. In an exclusive interview with the Associated Press, Barker says his last show will be June Seventh, 2007. Barker jokes that he wants to step down while he’s "still young." He turns 83 on December 12th. Barker admits he’ll miss the show and is "frightened by the thought of getting up in the morning and there will be no more shows." He says a search for a new host has been going on for two or three years. By the time he retires, Barker will have been on the tube for half a century and he says he’s "enjoyed every moment."
Another part of television history will end on June 7. 2007…so sad! I wish him the best!!!
