TV Game Show Host Monty Hall Has Died

Monty Hall, who co-created and hosted the TV game show “Let’s Make A deal,” has died at the age of 96.  He died Saturday at his Beverly Hills home.

“Let’s Make A Deal” first went on the air back in 1963, and Hall hosted the show for almost 5,000 episodes.  The show gives contestants the chance  to compete for prizes and then, after winning, take the risk of “trading up,” with the possibility of also losing it all.    In 1973, Hall received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame  and, as a Canadian native, was named to the Order of Canada in 1988.   Over the years, the show aired on ABC, NBC and also CBS.  After a hiatus, the show was revived in 2009, with host Wayne Brady.
