Los Angeles, CA, August 03, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Former Price Is Right host and animal advocate Bob Barker is returning to Animal Radio® for his 13th time guest-hosting the nationally syndicated call-in pet show.
Bob Barker is being celebrated as the Animal Radio® Hero Person for his extreme efforts in animal advocacy as well as his significant financial backing of many animal welfare organizations, making a difference worldwide.
Most notably, Bob refused to host the Miss America pageant because contestants were given fur coats as prizes. He also recently lobbied to ban circus animals and change the way zoo animals are treated.
"He has the record of the most appearances by any celeb on Animal Radio®," says Animal Radio® host Hal Abrams, "Bob personally told me he wants to be the record- holder and to let him know if anyone comes close. He's also sharp as a tack and I will query him about his secret to living a long life. He’s 90."
"You never know what Bob's going to talk about," says Animal Radio® Executive Producer Judy Francis, "last time he exposed a major animal welfare organization. Whatever he says, it's bound to turn heads and ears again."
Catch this special nationwide broadcast Saturday and Sunday August 9th and 10th on any of Animal Radio's 125 AM/FM affiliate stations including KFWB Los Angeles or eight digital properties including the Animal Radio® Smartphone App for iPhone/Android and iHeart Radio.
