From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Tom Bergeron was born in Haverhill, Massachusetts on May 6, 1955. He is best known to the public for his hosting duties on Hollywood Squares from 1998 to 2004. He has also hosted America's Funniest Home Videos since 2001. He shares a Daytime Emmy with Bob Barker.

One of his first jobs on television was as host of the local PBS game show Granite State Challenge. In the early 1990's he had an early-morning radio show called The Tom Bergeron Show on WBZ Radio in Boston. He also hosted People are Talking With Tom Bergeron on WBZ-TV. In 1996, he was the co-host of Fox After Breakfast along with Laurie Hibberd (under a different name, the show originally aired on the fledgling fX network several years earlier). This show ran for one year on Fox; it eventually became The Vicki Lawrence Show after a number of cast changes. At one time Bergeron was in the running to host Good Morning America. When Charles Gibson left the show, Bergeron was considered as a replacement but that job went to Kevin Newman. In 2005 he hosted the ABC reality series Dancing with the Stars.

Bergeron is married and has two daughters. He lives in Lee, New Hampshire, when not in Hollywood.
