The New York Times reports Hall's daughter, Joanna Gleason, confirmed he passed away at his home in Beverly Hills, California on Saturday, September 30th. Hall hosted the show for 23 years until 1986, and for a short time in 1991.
"Let's Make a Deal" became a part of American pop culture, with Hall one of the most recognizable stars on TV. He also co-hosted a weekend news show for the NBC Radio Network.
Hall would offer contestants a modest prize, then give them a chance to trade it for a mystery prize hidden by a curtain, stashed in a big box or concealed behind door No. 1, door No. 2 or door No. 3. It has been reported that Hall appeared in over 4,500 episodes of the hit game show.
The most recent revival airs on CBS and it is hosted by the comedian Wayne Brady.
The late TV presenter also created and produced the show, along with Stefan Hatos. "The Auctioneer" was a "pretty pedestrian" program until the concluding 10 minutes, when he would barter with audience members, Hall told the Daily Herald of suburban Chicago in 2000. In the end, Monty Hall said that he wanted to be remembered for helping people rather than his celebrity status.
But it'll forever be Let's Make A Deal, which debuted in December of 1963, that is Monty Hall's legacy. He re-invented the catch phrase when announcing who would compete next on Let's Make A Deal.
Hall was repeatedly honored for his charity efforts, with awards including the Order of Canada, Order of Manitoba and Variety Clubs International's Humanitarian Award.
In addition to his daughters, Hall is survived by his son, Richard; a brother, Robert Hall of Toronto, Canada, and five grandchildren.
In 1947, Hall married his wife, Marilyn, who became an Emmy Award-winning producer.
