On the latest edition of KCRW's The Spin-Off, it's the audio from a recent Paley Center panel I conducted with "The Price Is Right" host Drew Carey, "Let's Make a Deal" host Wayne Brady, and their producers:
The people behind two of daytime TV's most iconic game shows, The Price Is Right and Let's Make a Deal, share some of their most memorable moments and tell us how they ended up working on the shows in the first place. Both Drew Carey and Wayne Brady say they weren't actually interested in hosting a game show, but now, they say, they've come to love the job. Michael Schneider talks to Carey and Brady, as well as executive producers Mike Richards (who we learn was actually the number-two choice to host The Price is Right after Drew Carey) and Dan Funk. This conversation was recorded as part of the Paley Center for Media's exhibit CBS Daytime #1 for 30 Years.
