GSN will air its first ever awards show honoring classic and modern game shows. The Game Show Awards will premiere on GSN Saturday, June 6 at 8 p.m.

Special honors are on tap for now-retired host of The Price is Right Bob Barker, Let's Make a Deal's Monty Hall and game show producer Mark Goodson, who produced Price, Family Feud, I've Got a Secret and dozens of other programs.

"This will be a different kind of awards show-and the first-ever awards show dedicated exclusively to the world of game shows," said Kelly Goode, GSN's Senior Vice President of Programming, announcing the special. "The Game Show Awards will be a lighthearted, humorous homage to the talented people who make game shows a perennial favorite. We will also include exciting participatory elements that offer our at-home fans and in-studio audience the chance to play a role in the show."

Continuing the nets efforts at interacting with its viewers, fans will be able to vote on the nominees in a number of categories, including best host, announcer, model, contestant, catchphrase and others.

The awards show will also be a game show itself, with the studio audience given a shot to win prizes by playing some of their favorite games on stage.
