Today, news was put out that Monty Hall has died at the age of 96. Hall was a famous TV host who was best known for his time on Let’s Make A Deal. However, he was also on other shows and even has a famous puzzle named after him.
So what was Monty Hall net worth at death? What will happen to his estate? Read on…
Monty Hall began his career in Canada, on the radio. He did a bunch of local radio in different Canada markets before moving to the big time in Toronto.
He started to do Morning TV shows and news programs. He also dabbled in sports radio for a time.
From there, he got into game shows in the 1950s, and was involved in many lesser known shows, which were eventually cancelled. It wasn’t until the 1960s however that he became host of Let’s Make a Deal, the famous classic game show after which many of today’s shows are modeled.
The show spanned decades in different forms and on different channels. It went into syndication, where it continued to earn Hall money for many years.
After Let’s Make a Deal, Monty Hall went on to other game shows, and he produced the 2000s version of Let’s Make a Deal.
So what was Monty Hall net worth in 2018? What was his estate worth?
TV hosts of the 1950s and 1960s earned significantly less than they do today. Salaries in the $100,000-$200,000 range were common for an entire year (whereas now, some stars can make that per episode). Much of his net worth came from being a producer of Let’s Make a Deal follow-on shows.
In total, we estimate Monty Hall net worth at the time of his death at around $20 million. His estate will likely go to his 3 children, as his wife died earlier this year.
