Bob Stewart originally worked at WNEW-AM and NBC's WNBC-TV and AM and later got a job at Goodson-Todman Productions in 1956. He bumped into broadcaster Monty Hall (who later became a game show host years later) and created game shows like The Price is Right, To Tell the Truth, and Password. Stewart left G-T in 1964 to set out on his own and formed Bob Stewart Productions. The first solo game show he created was Eye Guess for NBC. His second son Sande Stewart later joined the company in 1973 and by forming "Basada, Inc.", which was named after his sons Barry, Sande, and David. Stewart formed another production company in 1985 called "Bob Stewart Cable, Inc." for producing game shows for cable broadcasts. Stewart would semi-retire in 1987 and his son Sande took over operations, renaming the company to "Bob Stewart & Sande Stewart Productions" and again on January 10, 1990 as Stewart Television, Inc.; under the new name, Bob Stewart Cable, Inc. was renamed as "Stewart Cable TV, Inc.". Stewart fully retired in 1992 and the company became in-name-only. Two years later, he sold the company to Sony Corporation of America. Today, most of the Stewart Television library (the exceptions: The Love Experts and Bill Cullen's version of The $25,000 Pyramid that's currently owned by CBS Media Ventures) is owned by Sony Pictures Television.
