Legendary host Monty Hall dies at 96

Posted October 02, 2017

Monty Hall, the infamous co-creator and host of "Let's Make a Deal", passed away in his home in California on Saturday.

While Hall hosted shows prior to Let's Make A Deal, it was his collaboration with creative partner Stefan Hatos that led to the creation of Let's Make A Deal and his biggest success. In 2002, he was inducted into Canada's Walk of Fame, along with two other Canadian game show hosts: Alex Trebek and Howie Mandel. By 1946, he was working as a radio announcer, and he soon moved on to TV shows - children's shows like "Cowboy Theater", game shows including "Bingo at Home" and even the news magazine "Monitor". Wayne Brady took over as host of the most recent version of the show in 2009.

In an interview, Hall said his philanthropy work was more important to him than his work in entertainment.

In 1991, the New York Times published an article about what became known as "the Monty Hall problem" - a probability puzzle hotly debated by mathematicians centering on the advisability of switching choices when given options like those on his show. #montyhallWinnipeg's ambassador in Hollywood, @umanitoba alumni & host of "Let's Make a Deal" has left our stage.

Iowa State falls to 2-2 overall and 0-1 in conference action, while Texas improves to 2-2 overall and 1-0 in league play. Plus, the last three foes have been held below the offensive numbers they were averaging coming into the game.

But it'll forever be Let's Make A Deal, which debuted in December of 1963, that is Monty Hall's legacy.

His family's financial circumstances and a childhood accident stirred that charitable desire, Hall said. Hall was repeatedly honored for his charity efforts, which he truly wanted to be remembered for, with awards including the Order of Canada, Order of Manitoba and Variety Clubs International's Humanitarian Award. He lost his wife, Marilyn, this past June.
