PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The longest running host of “The Price is Right” retired in 2007.

With that, the shows longest running host joined Carey on stage.
“You guys appreciate the fact that it has taken me a long time to become 90 years old,” Barker said with a laugh.
Bob Barker hosted the game show for 35 years, retiring in 2007. As always, he took the opportunity to promote his favorite cause, introducing a dog from a Los Angeles animal shelter. The Price is Right has been promoting pet adoption all week, in honor of the legendary host.
Six years after retirement, he still has the touch, and the voice.
Drawing on his experience, he said, “I get a chance to do, ‘It’s a new car!'”
