Bob Barker: The Time is Right

It's a sad day in television history. I thought he would be doing the show until he passed away. Bob Barker has announced that he is retiring :-( What in the world am I going to do when I'm home sick?

LOS ANGELES — Bob Barker is heading toward his last showcase, his final “Come on down.” The silver-haired daytime-TV icon is retiring in June, he told The Associated Press Tuesday.

“I will be 83 years old on December 12,” he said, “and I've decided to retire while I'm still young.”

He'll hang up his microphone after 35 years as the host of The Price Is Right and 50 years overall in television.
But when it comes to saying his final TV goodbye, Barker said he'll do it the same way he does each day on Price: “Help control the pet population. Have your pets spayed or neutered.”
