Biography

Few celebrities claim a broader omnipresence in the media than former MTV veejay and all-around heartthrob Carson Daly. This quintessential Southern California native shot to fame in the late '90s, initially as the host of the MTV channel's Total Request Live -- a long-running showcase for the most requested music videos of the day, voted on by viewers. Around January 2002, Daly left the program and received an offer from NBC to produce and host one of that network's late-late-night talk spots, Last Call with Carson Daly, which premiered to -- and sustained -- excellent ratings. In 2011, he began hosting the popular competetive reality series The Voice and in fall of 2013, continued his relationship with NBC by taking a job as one of the hosts of the Today show. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
