TV Icon Hosts for 15th Time February 25, 26

(FEBRUARY 2017) – Envision Networks®’ Animal Radio® welcomes television icon Bob Barker as a guest host on Saturday, Feb. 25 and Sunday, Feb. 26. America’s most-listened-to pet talk can currently be heard on 133 radio stations across the country on the Envision Talk Network.

Bob Barker may be best remembered for his “Spay and Neuter” messages at the end of The Price is Right, but many also know the 93-year-old TV host as a loud proponent towards the elimination of performing animals, including elephants. Barker has spent thousands of dollars rescuing elephants and transporting them to sanctuaries and was instrumental in shuttering Ringling Bros. Circus.

Barker is now saving orphan bears shot by hunters. “I was on the National Rifle Association’s ‘enemy list,’” Barker said. “I’m no way opposed to guns, I sleep with a .45 next to my bed, but I don’t want to go out and kill animals.”

“This marks the most-frequent guest host on Animal Radio,” co-host Hal Abrams said. “Bob joins us for the 15th time in as many years. He’s always a breath of fresh air and honesty.”

Bob Barker’s guest spot can be heard on this special national broadcast Feb. 25, and rebroadcast on Feb. 26, on 133 AM-FM stations across the nation, including flagship KOST 103.5 Los Angeles.
