Monty Hall, best known as the cheerful and friendly host of the game show 'Let's Make a Deal,' died Saturday morning in Los Angeles, his daughter Sharon Hall said.

He was 96 years old and had been ill after suffering a heart attack shortly after his wife of almost 70 years died in June.

"He was the greatest father on the planet ... he was the dad who called every single night to see how your day was and never tired of hearing the details. He lived for his family," Sharon Hall said.

Monty Hall co-created and hosted the first version of the popular game show, on which contestants dressed in costumes -- some zany -- and often won prizes behind one of three doors. The show premiered in 1963 and Hall hosted day-time and prime-time iterations of the show until 1986 (and for a brief time in 1991). Hall reportedly appeared in more than 4,500 episodes.


May He Rest In Peace.

R.I.P., Mr. Hall.

I play on a police charity team a couple times a year...one of the local guys name is Monte Hall.

Didn't realize he was that old or that it's been that long.

Enjoy Door Number 3, Mr. Hall.
