Monty Hall

August 25, 1921 – September 30, 2017

Monty Hall is one of three game show hosts to have both a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and Canada’s Walk of Fame. Born Monte Halparin in Winnipeg, Hall got his start in radio and eventually made his way to Toronto, New York and then to Los Angeles. He presented and hosted game shows in both radio and television, ultimately co-creating and hosting the landmark TV game show Let’s Make a Deal which ran for 13 years (and another 13+ in syndication.) Hall created other game shows throughout his career and was involved in the 2009 reboot of Deal hosted by Wayne Brady and he worked tirelessly for philanthropic causes and charities for decades. At the age of 96, Monty died of heart failure in his home just a few months after losing his wife of nearly 70 years.
