From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Mike Bongiorno /maɪk bonˈdʒorno/ (born in New York City, United States on May 26, 1924) is one of the best known Italian television hosts.

He started working in Italian TV as soon as the first day of official public TV (RAI) broadcasting in 1954, in the programme Arrivi e Partenze. From 1955 to 1959 he hosted the quiz Lascia o Raddoppia? (the Italian version of The $64,000 Question), one of the most famous Italian TV programmes ever. He continued working in RAI until he hosted I sogni nel cassetto on Tele Milano (now Canale 5), one of the first Italian commercial TVs, owned by Silvio Berlusconi.

He has hosted the Italian version of Wheel of Fortune (La Ruota della Fortuna) since 1989. Nowadays he hosts Genius on Rete 4, a quiz for 12–14-years-old kids.
