Johnny Olson - Death


Olson died on Saturday, October 12, 1985 in Santa Monica, California, six days after suffering a cerebral hemorrhage. The staff and crew of The Price Is Right learned of Olson's condition as studio 33 at CBS Television City was being prepared for another day's taping. Production was cancelled for the rest of the week (shows were recorded several weeks in advance of broadcast). There was no on-air mention of Olson's death until October 15 when then-host Bob Barker paid tribute to Olson in an attached segment that followed the end credits. The last Olson-announced episode aired on November 8, 1985. He was entombed at Rosewood Cemetery in Lewisburg, West Virginia.

Famous quotes containing the word death:

    When death comes too near, comedy and tragedy fall silent.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    Abba, dark death is the breaking of a glass.
    The dazzled flakes and splinters disappear.
    The seal is as relaxed as dirt, perdu.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    People named John and Mary never divorce. For better or for worse, in madness and in saneness, they seem bound together for eternity by their rudimentary nomenclature. They may loathe and despise one another, quarrel, weep, and commit mayhem, but they are not free to divorce. Tom, Dick, and Harry can go to Reno on a whim, but nothing short of death can separate John and Mary.
    John Cheever (1912–1982)
