Bob Barker started his national television career in 1956 as the host of the popular Truth or Consequences after many years in local television and radio markets. Bob became the host of The Price is Right in the Fall of 1972 and has been with the show ever since -- outlasting games, "Barker's Beauties" and two announcing legends, both Johnny Olson and Rod Roddy.
Bob's been considering retirement for at least ten years but says he was just having too much fun to give it up. But, now that he's reached a pair of impressive milestones (35 years on The Price Is Right and 50 years on national television), Bob feels the time is right to hang up the mic.
