(Branson, Missouri) – The Welk Resort Branson is excited to announce the celebrity host of “The Price Is Right Live!”. Starting July 9, 2012, Monday through Saturday at 8pm, Bob Goen will host the live stage show version of the popular television show, complete with audience interaction!
The decade-long co-host of television's syndicated hit "Entertainment Tonight," Bob Goen is among the best-known broadcast personalities in the world. For global audiences of hundreds of millions, he has been seen hosting the "Miss Universe," "Miss USA" and "Miss Teen USA" Pageants.
Goen joined "ET" as a correspondent and weekend anchor in July 1993, but shortly took over for John Tesh at the “ET” anchor desk where he remained beside the legendary Mary Hart until 2004. His disarming charisma and journalistic expertise made him the show's most accomplished interviewer, demanded by such icons as Jim Carrey, Julia Roberts, and Harrison Ford.
After starting his career as a sportscaster in radio and television, Goen made the transition to his life-long dream...game shows. Among other games, he hosted the daytime version of “Wheel of Fortune”, and then followed that up with the prime-time show, “The Hollywood Game”. Currently, Bob has been hosting both “Family Feud Live” and “The Price is Right Live” in Las Vegas and other locations. And now he joins the show in Branson, Mo.
The Price Is Right, Live! follows virtually the same format as the TV show: anyone can register to participate as a contestant and may be called to, “Come on down!’. The contestant who wins the initial one-bid is then given a chance to win more prizes by playing one of the iconic and popular games such as Plinko, Cliffhangers, Punch-A-Bunch, and The Big Wheel to name just a few. And of course, two lucky contestants will get a chance to compete in the Showcase. Also, in the live stage show version, more than 40 audience members will receive prizes.
Bob Goen brings a professional style and charm that will make The Price Is Right Live! one of the most popular and talked about shows in Branson.
The Price Is Right, Live! schedule covers July through December 2012. Performance times are 8 pm Monday through Saturday. Box Office price for adults is $29.95 + tax and a Kid (17 and under) is FREE! with paid adult. Additional kids tickets are $15 + tax. Tickets are available by phone at 800-505-9355 or on-line at WelkBranson.com.
