To My Friends in Studio 33

The Price is Right collected several statuettes at the Daytime Emmy Awards Friday night.

Host Bob Barker won his 13th Emmy for Outstanding Game Show Host.

The show itself won for Outstanding Game/Audience Participation Show; that Emmy was accepted in New York by Roger Dobkowitz, producer of the show and one of the nicest people you’d ever meet. Bart Eskander won an Emmy for Outstanding Technical Direction.

Many people would likely say, “It’s just a game show…” and it is. But I have to admire any show in this day and age that can claim longevity and such a high standard of quality. (For the record, it premiered on September 4, 1972 and has been going strong ever since.)

To Bob, Roger, Kathy, Bart and the crew: Congratulations!
