Monty Hall, the original host of the iconic game show "Let's Make a Deal," will be honored at the 40th annual Daytime Emmy Awards with the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award.
Bob Stewart, the creator of "To Tell the Truth," "Password" and "The $10,000 Pyramid," will also receive the honor.
"We are honoring giants in game show history," Malachy Wienges, chairman of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, said in a statement. "So many of us grew up watching Monty Hall excite us with what was behind Door No. 1, No. 2 or No. 3, and found ourselves addicted to the challenge and imagination of Bob Stewart's classic 'To Tell the Truth,' 'Password,' 'Pyramid,' and others."
