If vintage game shows are still being aired as repeats do the hosts of those shows still get royalties?

Take Supermarket sweep for example. It is still being played as reruns on TV and Amazon Prime. Does David Ruprecht still get royalties from those shows airing?

    I believe so yes.  Paul O'Neill sometimes broadcasts Yankee games.  He jokes once in a while about checks for 10 cents showing up because an old episode of Seinfeld he was in gets reran.  So Supermarket Sweep should not be any different.

    I assume they do, unless all rights are bought.
