Fashionable sport present host Bob Barker, a family title for a half-century as host of “Reality or Penalties” and “The Value Is Proper,” has died at his house in Los Angeles. Barker was 99. He died Saturday, August 26, in line with publicist Roger Neal.

Barker retired in June 2007, telling his studio viewers: “I thanks, thanks, thanks for inviting me into your property for greater than 50 years.” Barker was working in radio in 1956 when producer Ralph Edwards invited him to audition as the brand new host of “Reality or Penalties,” a sport present through which viewers members needed to do wacky stunts – the “consequence” – in the event that they didn’t reply a query – the “reality,” which was at all times the foolish punchline to a riddle nobody was ever meant to furnish.

In a 1996 interview with The Related Press, Barker recalled receiving the information that he had been employed: “I do know precisely the place I used to be, I do know precisely how I felt: I hung up the cellphone and mentioned to my spouse, ‘Dorothy Jo, I acquired it!'” Barker stayed with “Reality or Penalties” for 18 years – together with a number of years in a syndicated model.

In the meantime, he started internet hosting a resurrected model of “The Value Is Proper” in 1972. It could grow to be TV’s longest-running sport present and the final on a broadcast community of what in TV’s early days had numbered dozens. “I’ve grown previous in your service,” the silver-haired, perennially tanned Barker joked on a prime-time tv retrospective within the mid-’90s. In all, he taped greater than 5,000 exhibits in his profession.

Born in Darrington, Washington, in 1923, Barker spent a part of his childhood on the Rosebud Indian Reservation in South Dakota, the place his widowed mom had taken a educating job. The household later moved to Springfield, Mo., the place he attended highschool. He served within the Navy in World Conflict II.

He married Dorothy Jo Gideon, his highschool sweetheart; she died in 1981 after 37 years of marriage. They’d no kids.

Barker was given a lifetime achievement award on the 26th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in 1999. He closed his acceptance remarks with the signoff: “Have your pets spayed or neutered.”
