Television icon, The Price Is Right, director, and father of Michael Gargiulo, Mike Gargiulo’s cause of death has been followed by fans’ questions since he passed away on Tuesday (November 30, 2021) at the age of 95. May he rest in peace.
Mike Gargiulo was the nine-time Emmy winner who directed several of TV’s best-loved game shows for a half-century and began his illustrious broadcast career at WNBC, where his son Michael co-anchors “Today in New York.”
He began his TV career at WNBC, serving as a staff director in the early 1950s, and did most all of the local shows in New York till 1959 when NBC chose him to enter the State Department project to form a TV studio in Moscow and introduce color TV to the Russian people throughout the exchange.
It was in this studio that Nikita Khrushchev and Richard Nixon had their famous “kitchen debate,” which Gargiulo recorded and rushed back to NBC. The tapes were shared with CBS and ABC within hours and are said to have potentially helped usher along with the era of modern-day, televised political debates.
For five decades, the legend directed some of TV’s favorite game shows, such as “Password,” “The Price Is Right” and “$10,000 Pyramid.” He additionally produced over 30 years of difference specials for CBS, covering the Thanksgiving Day Parade, for which he was got an Emmy nomination in 1974, New Year’s Eve, and other events.
