Emmy Award Winning Game Show Host Todd Newton
For those of you who have been following my blog, let me just first of start by saying thank you. As I continue to grow into the blogger that I hope to be, I will continue to add new and innovative modalities for you to see, hear and experience. My newest addition that I will be unleashing every Monday is a new podcast dedicated to helping out the TV Hosting industry. It’s called “Life on Air With Tim Tialdo.” Each week I’ll be giving the latest and greatest in the TV Hosting industry by interviewing top hosts, coaches, casting directors and industry big wigs to help keep you on top of what’s happening in the industry and how you can take advantage of it.
I’m super excited about my first podcast today, because it’s just by dumb luck that my first guest Todd Newton won a Daytime Emmy Award over the weekend in Hollywood for his work as a Game Show Host on “Family Game Night.” To win it, he beat out some stiff competition, check this out:
2012 Daytime Emmy Awards Nominees for Best Game Show Host:
Ben Bailey – Cash Cab
Meredith Vieira – Who Wants To Be A Millionaire
Wayne Brady – Let’s Make A Deal
Todd Newton – Family Game Night
I think Todd even shocked himself we he pulled away with the Emmy, but I can say that there is no one more deserving and no one that works harder in this industry than he does. He is a native of St. Louis, and for those of you who grew up in the Gateway City during the late 80’s and early 90’s, you might recognize him by his old on-air call sign, “Rick Idol.”
Todd and I recorded this podcast a few weeks back and it just so happens that he goes out and wins and Emmy 2 days before it’s scheduled to air. As the saying goes, “when it rains it pours!” Way to go Todd!
In today’s Life On Air podcast you’ll learn about Todd’s first big TV gig as one of the hosts that really helped launch E! Entertainment into the stratosphere in the 1990’s. He also has some great advice for current and aspiring TV hosts.
