“The Price is Right” hits the road for contestants


For the first time in the show’s nearly 38-year history, CBS is going to local markets to interview potential contests for “The Price is Right” and fly them to LA to play the game. The contestant search will begin in five CBS O&O markets.

Contestant screenings are set for June 26 in Burlington, NJ (KYW-TV Philadelphia), July 25 in Brooks, CA (KOVR-TV Sacramento), August 1 in Prior Lake, MN (WCCO-TV Minneapolis) and August 6 in Central City, CO (KCNC-TV Denver), and a date yet to be set in Hammond, IN (WBBM-TV Chicago). Additional cities will be added in the coming weeks.

The Price is Right, the longest-running game show in television history, is hosted by Drew Carey. It is produced by FremantleMedia North America.
