Former TV Game Show Host Headed To Corpus Christi
CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) — Former "The Price is Right" host Bob Barker will return to a Texas military installation where he became a Navy fighter pilot to help celebrate its 75th anniversary.
Naval Air Station Corpus Christi on Thursday announced the 92-year-old Barker will be the guest speaker at its March 12 celebration.
The Navy installation has supported pilot training and operations since opening in 1941. A Naval Air Station Corpus Christi statement says Barker became an aviator and earned his wings on Dec. 6, 1944. He achieved a lieutenant junior grade rank.
Barker began hosting "The Price is Right" in 1972. He retired from the game show in 2007.
