Biography

Consummate host and emcee Tom Bergeron elevated the often derided title of "TV personality" with his seemingly effortless mixture of accessible affability and quick wit. A native New Englander, Bergeron began his career in radio and television on local stations before gaining national exposure with work on the latest iteration of the long-running celebrity game show "The Hollywood Squares" (syndicated, 1998-2004). Before long, Tom's talents helped him land hosting duties on "America's Funniest Home Videos" (ABC, 1989- ) in 2001, in addition to acting spots on such programs as the sitcom "The Nanny" (1993-99) and the "Star Trek" series "Enterprise" (UPN, 2001-05). In 2005, he landed his highest profile gig when he signed on as the co-host of the celebrity dance competition "Dancing with the Stars" (ABC, 2005- ). Always reliable and quick with a jaunty retort to nearly any situation, the Emmy-winning Bergeron easily became regarded as one of the most likable and professional personalities on American television.
