Former “Price is Right” host Bob Barker is reportedly hospitalized in Los Angeles after experiencing major back pain.
Paramedics arrived at the 94-year-old’s Hollywood Hills home at around 1 p.m. Monday and took him to Cedars-Sinai hospital, according to TMZ.
Barker was experiencing more pain than usual, so the family thought it was best to have an ambulance come and take to the hospital. Barker’s family felt it was best for trained professionals to move him.
We’re told it was not an emergency situation.
Barker’s manager says he is awake, alert, and being evaluated by medical staff.
Bob Barker hosted his last episode of “The Price Is Right” back in 2007. Since stepping down from the iconic gig, Barker has returned to the show three times but mostly focused on his animal rights work.
