Unless I'm forgetting someone, the last person to pass on while still an active part of a show was Johnny Olson in 1985 for The Price Is Right. Bob Barker mentioned that they would continue showing episodes that were taped with John before he died. After he passed away they had his episodes run on CBS for a month and a half prior to his death. 25 years later in 2010, when Charlie O'Donnell died, the first Wheel of Forture episode that aired did not have Charlie announcing. That might have been coincidental as I don't know or recall if they held any episodes until later in 2010-2011 as a tribute. Could be a situation that O'Donnell was too ill to continue and it just happened that his final episode aired the last day before his passing. I guess we'll find out soon; syndicated episodes usually taped more in advance of their airdate whereas network shows aren't as long I saw somewhere the last air date will be december 25 3 Link to comment
