As one piece of television history dies, another is being revived: CBS will replace Guiding Light, television's longest-running drama, with a revamped version of the classic game show Let's Make a Deal, the network announced Monday.
"I am honored and ready to go," Brady said in a statement. "It is not every day that you get to be a part of a franchise like Let's Make a Deal."
Guiding Light will go off the air Sept. 18. It debuted on NBC Radio in January 1937 and segued to television in June 1952.
