LOS ANGELES The Price Is Right is losing a prize that can't be estimated in dollars and cents: legendary host Bob Barker.
Barker, 83 in December, will retire from the game show in June after 35 seasons as its first and only host. "I want to retire while I'm still young," Barker said after taping Tuesday in the Bob Barker Studio at Television City.
"I probably made up my mind four or five days ago," he says. "I got up in the morning, and I was rushing around to the fax machine, to the telephone, to get the mail, trying to get to the studio, and I thought, 'Now's the time.' "
