Bob Barker honored by Missourians

September 14, 2007|From the Associated Press

After more than 6,500 episodes of "The Price Is Right," it was Bob Barker's turn to "Come on down" this week in Jefferson City, Mo.

Missouri House Speaker Rod Jetton and Barry Bennett, a former radio broadcaster who now works for Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder, repeated the famed line. Only this time, Barker descended the stairs of the Missouri Capitol Rotunda as he was inducted into the Hall of Famous Missourians.

Barker, 83, is the 30th inductee, joining luminaries such as Mark Twain, Walt Disney, Walter Cronkite, Scott Joplin and Charlie Parker. Barker retired from the CBS game show this year.
