Kathleen "Kathy" McDonald Greco, nicknamed "Fingers" (born September 1950 in Phoenix, Arizona), is the former producer on the game show The Price is Right.
Early Career[edit | edit source]
Joining Goodson-Todman Productions in 1975, she became a production assistant on the game, creating the pricing game Secret 'X' in 1977, moving to Associate Producer in Season 17 (1988), Co-Producer in Season 36 (2007), and Producer in Season 37 (2008), although she later shared Producer duties with long-time staff member Adam Sandler (not to be confused with the actor of the same name, who coincidentally appeared with Barker in the movie 'Happy Gilmore' and made occasional appearances on the show) in Season 38 (2009). Fingers left the show on January 27, 2011; to celebrate her retirement, the second half of the show featured pricing games created by her.
Nickname[edit | edit source]
She was nicknamed "Fingers" after she gave host Bob Barker a back rub in the early 1980s. He was suffering from a herniated disc and sciatica at the time. Barker mentioned she had "magic fingers." The nickname stuck and was shortened to "Fingers". She married golf pro-Frank "Thumbs" Greco shortly after. One of her main responsibilities, prior to being promoted to Producer, was to document everything which occurred on the show, including all contestants' responses, wins, and losses.
