Legendary game-show host Bob Barker has just finished his autobiography, “Priceless Memories,” and he’s had many over his 50-year television career.
He holds a number of records for longevity in the television industry, including the record for holding a weekday TV job continuously for 51 years. He has the second-longest run as host of a single entertainment broadcast show, and, since he was 83 when he retired, he was the oldest man ever to host a weekday television program. He also hosted a five-days-a-week program longer than anyone in television history.
Now, at the age of 85, Bob is as active, engaged and enjoying life as much as ever. His book is a remarkable insight into a time and an era gone by, but also into the mind and attitude of a man who changed the rules of aging and set a path for the rest of us to follow.
