A Day With Four Game Show Legends.
These photos were taken on my cell phone camera by me (and if I am in the picture then my television agent for many years, Fred Wostbrock took the shot). The pictures were all taken at an old studio in the heart of Hollywood for a photo shoot for Vanity Fair. Bob Barker had invited me to stop by the shoot on my way in to work at CBS News, where I was now one of their top night-time Meteorologists. Bob and a few of other game show hosts were all together for this piece that Vanity Fair was to publish on Game Show Icons.
It had been a month or so since Bob and I had last seen each other… and he lit up with a huge smile when he saw me walk into the studio. So did Monty Hall, an old golfing buddy of mine from my days as a Meteorologist at the CBS affiliate in Palm Springs. Monty would regularly invite me to hit the links with him during various golf outings that he had organized. Monty was a HUGE philanthropist. He actually holds a record being the biggest fund raiser of all-time for various charities, causes and groups in-need. Google “Monty Hall Philanthropy” and you’ll see what I mean.
Two other game show icons were also in attendance that day, which were Peter Marshall and Tom Kennedy. It was history in the making. At no time had these four successful game show hosts ever been in the same room together, let alone be photographed together. So, I was giddy at the chance to watch the magic happen.
