Area residents remember answering the call to 'Come on Down'
(WOUB) - Linda Dent is preparing to say goodbye to CBS game show host Bob Barker.

The 52-year-old Culloden resident is a lifelong fan of Barker's show, "The Price is Right."

She's also a former contestant.

In 2000, the Hurricane Elementary School teacher won a dinette set, an armoire and a supply of farm fresh eggs after appearing on the show.

Now Dent and millions of other viewers are preparing to say farewell to Barker. The 83 year old is retiring from the show after 35 years.

His replacement has not yet been named, but for Dent and other avid fans, the show will never be the same.

Marshall University medical student Andrea Lauffer received a trip to the show as a Christmas gift in 2003.

The 23 year old says appearing on the show was a dream she'd had since she was a young child.

"The Price is Right" has remained the most-watched game show in daytime.

Barker's final episode airs next Friday.
