Bob Barker – Entertainer and Animal Activist Still Thriving at 99

Bob Barker has been famous for a long time. He’s best known for hosting a TV show called “The Price is Right” for 35 years. Now, he’s turning 100 years old this year.

He grew up in South Dakota and met his wife at a concert. They got married in 1945 when he was in the Navy. After the war, he went to college and got a degree in economics.

Barker became a host for a radio show in Los Angeles. Then, he got a job hosting a TV game show called “Truth or Consequences.” Later, in 1972, he started hosting “The Price is Right,” which made him really famous.

His wife helped him a lot in his career, but she passed away in 1981. He didn’t get remarried, but he found another partner, Nancy, who has been with him for 40 years.

Barker is known for his good health, even at almost 100 years old. He only takes one medication for his thyroid. He’s had some health problems in the past, like a blocked artery, a stroke, and skin cancer.

Barker retired from “The Price is Right,” and now another person hosts the show. But he still makes appearances sometimes.

He’s also known for caring about animals. He always ended his show by reminding people to spay or neuter their pets. His late wife inspired him to care about animals, and he’s donated a lot of money to help them.

In his long life, Barker has made a big impact on the world, especially for animals. We’re lucky to have someone like him!
