Bob Barker‘s name could soon grace an intersection in Hollywood … his longtime girlfriend and management team are working on getting him a memorial town square.
Roger Neal, Bob’s longtime publicist, tells TMZ … Bob’s girlfriend, Nancy Burnet, and Bob’s reps are working with the City of Los Angeles to make a potential “Bob Barker Memorial Square” a reality.
We’re told Bob’s camp is talking with City Council Member Hugo Soto-Martinez, whose district includes Hollywood, to see which intersection works best for a Barker tribute.
The late ‘Price Is Right’ host lived in Hollywood on Outpost Drive since the 1950s, and we’re told the city agrees it’s a no-brainer to remember him with a town square named in his honor … so it sounds like location is the main hurdle.
Bob’s publicist previously helped shepherd memorial town squares for Carol Burnett and Mickey Rooney in L.A. … which would seem to bode well for Barker’s camp.
TMZ broke the story … PETA previously asked the city to honor Bob with Bob Barker Blvd. in front of their office on Sunset Blvd.
We’re told Nancy and Bob’s team are not a part of PETA’s plans, and this is a totally separate memorial.
Bottom line … Bob’s so beloved in L.A. it sounds like he could end up with multiple city tributes.
