Monty Hall, legendary host of 'Let's Make a Deal,' dead at 96

Monty Hall, host and co-creator of the long-running game show "Let's Make a Deal", has died.

Monty was inducted into the American TV Game Show Hall of Fame back in 2007.

Hall launched Let's Make a Deal in 1963. The show became legendary for encouraging audience members to dress up in outlandish costumes in order to attract Hall's attention in the hopes of being given the opportunity to win big.

Hall and Hatos produced several other game shows under their production company through the 1970s and '80s.

Hall was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, on August 25, 1921, as Monte Halperin.

In addition to Gleason, Hall is survived by daughter Sharon Hall and son Richard; a brother Robert Hall; and five grandchildren.
