  • Report: “Let's Make a Deal” host Monty Hall passes away at 96

Hall, who had been in poor health, died Saturday morning of heart failure at his home in Beverly Hills, said his daughter, Sharon Hall of Los Angeles.

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

Born in Canada, Hall earned a college degree in zoology and biology but instead began his career in radio, moving to television in 1960.

The family of Monty Hall estimates that the entertainer raised almost a billion dollars over the years for various charities. A syndicated version of Deal aired on and off through the 1970s and 80s, before returning to NBC for a brief run from 1990-91.

The highlight was when a contestant was offered a choice of prizes hidden behind one of three on-stage doors - "door number one, door number two or door number three" became a national catch phrase.

Graves Co. Central Elementary Named National Blue Ribbon School
Hoover Elementary is one of 342 institutions across the nation to receive the designation of 2017 National Blue Ribbon School . The celebrations were especially meaningful for Silva, the only school in El Paso ever to earn three Blue Ribbons.

In 2009, Wayne Brady took the title and has remained as the host.

The late TV presenter also created and produced the show, along with Stefan Hatos. The tradition of zany costumes evolved as the show continued, and contestants vied in more absurd fashion to attract Hall's attention.

Hall was involved in Let's Make a Deal to the end, both an owner of the show and an occasional guest.

His family's financial circumstances and a childhood accident stirred that charitable desire, Hall said. Hall was repeatedly honored for his charity efforts, which he truly wanted to be remembered for, with awards including the Order of Canada, Order of Manitoba and Variety Clubs International's Humanitarian Award.

He is survived by his children: actress Joanna Gleason; Sharon Hall Kessler, head of television at Alcon Entertainment; and Richard Hall, a television producer.
