Famous television star was just found dead in Beverlly Hills after heart failure. Prayers for the family.
He is known as the legendary host of the classic TV game show “Let’s Make a Deal.” The incredible Monty Hall passed away Saturday, Sept. 30, 2017.
According to New York Times he suffered from heart failure at his home in Beverly Hills. Meanwhile, he was 96 at the time of his heartbreaking death.
Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, he went on to major in chemistry and zoology at the University of Manitoba. Just a few years later in 1946, he was working as a radio announcer.
It wasn’t long after that when he moved over to TV shows and became one of the greatest hosts to ever live. He started out hosting children’s shows like “Cowboy Theater,” game shows including “Bingo at Home” and even the news magazine “Monitor.”
“Let’s Make a Deal” was his own idea, along with his business partner, Stefan Hatos. It was a very popular game show that debuted in 1963. The show was a daytime show on NBC, a weekly nighttime program on ABC, in syndication and on Canadian TV.
Hall was the host and producer of all of them. That was until 1986. In the past few years the show “Let’s Make a Deal” has undergone a revival featuring Wayne Brady as host.
He was no ordinary host. Hall was legendary. He has stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Canada’s Walk of Fame and the Palm Springs, California, Walk of Stars. He has also received a lifetime achievement award from the Daytime Emmy Awards.
And just to add on to those accomplishments, he was a member of the American TV Game Show Hall of Fame.
He is survived by their children, Joanna, Sharon and Richard. Prayers for the family during this heartbreaking time.
