Thomas “Tom” Bergeron is an American television personality and game show host, best known as the host of the ABC reality series Dancing with the Stars (2005–present) and host of America’s Funniest Home Videos (2001–present). He was also host of Hollywood Squares (1998–2004) and a fill-in host for Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. He is a Daytime Emmy winner. He was born in Haverhill, Massachusetts, U.S.A.. His date of birth or birthday is on May 6, 1955.
Bergeron’s first job in broadcasting was as a disc jockey at local radio station WHAV, in his home town of Haverhill, Massachusetts. He was an extremely popular radio DJ in the Seacoast area of New Hampshire in the early 1980s on Portsmouth’s WHEB, where he played comedy records along with music and offbeat interviews. His professional voice and warm personality landed him additional TV and radio auditions.
In June 1994, Bergeron left WBZ when he was hired by the new FX cable network to co-host a morning talk show for them, called Breakfast Time, which was his first network television exposure. Hosting with Laurie Hibberd, the show became quite successful on the upstart cable network, prompting the Fox Broadcasting Company to pick it up two years later. At the time, the cable system in his hometown of Haverhill didn’t carry FX, leading to a long-running and ultimately failed public campaign to get them to pick up the channel or at the very least to locally syndicate the program.
In 2005, Bergeron was a co-host on the Jerry Lewis Muscular Dystrophy Association Telethon, and in 2006 he was elected national vice president of the association.
