William Lawrence Francis "Bill" Cullen (February 18, 1920 – July 7, 1990) was an American radio and television personality whose career spanned five decades. He was best known for television game shows, where he hosted multiple series (including the original version of The Price is Right, The $25,000 Pyramid, and Blockbusters), and served as a panelist for over twenty years combined on I've Got a Secret and To Tell the Truth.

Cullen died on July 7, 1990, of lung cancer, considering the fact that he smoked for a majority of his life.

His career in American game shows is unmatched by anyone.
