Tom Bergeron


Tom Bergeron was 17 when he became the youngest DJ Ever at WHAV Raido, the local radio station in his hometown of Haverhill, Massachusetts. He worked his way up in radio and soon found himself hosting his own show, "The Tom Bergeron Show," a late night talk/comedy show that tripled ratings for the New Hampsire station on which it aired. In 1982 Bergeron added Television to his plate while still hosting his New Hampshire broadcast, He was the host of the Emmy Award-winning magazine series "Super Kids" at WBZ-TV Boston.
<p>
The Success of "Super Kids" earned Bergeron other hosting duties at the station, including the daily broadcast of "4 Today" and the Emmy Award-winning children's series "Rap Around." In 1987 he was tapped to host "People Are Talking," the station's popular morning series, where he remained for the next six years. while He was on the show Tom also began the city's top morning radio show on WBZ-AM in 1990.
<p>
In 1993, Bergeron made the leap from local to national television as host of upstart cable network FX's "Breakfast Time." His sardonic humor and anything-goes approach made him an instant hit with viewers. Two years later, the series moved over to the FOX Broadcast network, reaching an even larger audience. He proved up to the challange, and following his stint with FOX, Bergeron served as a guest anchor of "Good Morning America."
<p>
Executive Producers for "Hollywood Squares" Tapped Bergeron as the new host of the show following an exhaustive search for someone with the right combination of wit, charm and patience - after all, keeping nine laugh-grabbing celebrities in line isn't for the faint of heart. Tom nabbed the 2000 Daytime Emmy award for "Outstanding Game Show Host," an honor he shared with Bob Barker. Amidst all the congratulations for his win, Bergeron added his usaual comic spin: "I don't know who the judges were or what they were drinking."
<p>
Bergeron is also host of another widely-watched television show, "America's Funniest Home Videos," parlaying what began as a half-season gig into a four-year stint. As he sees it, "It's like I get to oversee a video buffet, where people can go several times an hour and be guaranteed a good laugh. How many places on TV can you go where that's still true?" In addition to that job, he made a splash this summer as host of ABC's hit "Dancing with the Stars."
