Bob Barker is hospitalized in L.A. after paramedics responded to his Hollywood Hills home... TMZ has learned

Television host Bob Barker is awake, alert and resting comfortably after being hospitalized, ET has learned. He was transported to Cedars-Sinai hospital, the report says.

Around 1 p.m. Monday, paramedics responded to the 94-year-old's home in Hollywood Hills after receiving a call from family member's that Barker woke up with major back pain.

William Prappas, Barker's business manager, told USA Today that the former TV host was experiencing pain from an earlier back injury and decided he needed to go to the hospital.

"It's painful [and] hard for him to get into a vehicle", a rep told ET. "The easier way - the more prudent way to transport him - was by ambulance".

"The Fire Department went to his house for a non-emergency back problem. He's OK and resting comfortably at home", his rep tells ET. Almost two weeks ago Fox reported that Barker suffered a "non-emergency" back injury.

They released a statement reading, "the $73,540 debt to the Illinois State Board of Elections has been paid in full". The Amara Enyia campaign thanks Chicago native, Kanye West, for his generous action.

The representative said it will take "some time" for Barker to heal as he deals with the pain and difficulty of moving around.

Barker is best known for hosting "The Price is Right" from 1972 to 2007.

This isn't Barker's first health scare. His housekeeper drove him to the hospital in that incident.

The game show host suffered a similar fall in 2015. "He was in and out [of the hospital], spent maybe a couple of hours there".
