Carson Daly was born in Santa Monica, California, in June 1973. He attended Loyola Marymount University, where he studied theology and played golf. The 1990s saw Daly immerse himself in the radio business, and as a DJ he climbed the ladder of success to LA’s hottest station. This caught the attention of MTV, and Daly moved to NY to host the network’s Total Request Live. The show was a smash hit and put Daly’s face on millions of TVs. That success led to others, and he has since hosted Last Call With Carson Daly, The Voice, the Today show’s “Orange Room” and NBC’s New Year’s Eve show.
Today and The Voice
In 2011, Daly became a presence on prime time as well when he took on hosting duties for NBC’s vocal-competition show The Voice. Another smash hit, the show opened up an even wider audience to Daly’s talents. Daly maintains all these shows and is also still on the radio, hosting Mornings With Carson Daily on Top 40 KAMP in LA and the syndicated weekly The Daly Download With Carson Daly.
In 2013 Daly began hosting the Today show’s “Orange Room,” serving as a live liaison between the viewers and the show.Over his years in the TV and radio industry, Daly has been honored several times, having been nominated for three Daytime Emmy awards and winning one (for The Voice). He has also won two Teen Choice awards for Total Request Live.
