Peterman that led to dozens of advertising campaigns for companies such as Xerox and The Travel Channel, earning him multiple advertising and marketing industry awards.
After a two-year stint hosting "To Tell The Truth" and a three-year stint hosting USA Network's "Get Golf with the PGA Tour," O'Hurley is now the regular host of NBC's "The National Dog Show presented by Purina," a Thanksgiving tradition, to 21 million viewers.

O'Hurley was born in Kittery, ME, but his career began in West Hartford, CT. At a very young age, he remembers dressing in a swimsuit, homemade oxygen tank and goggles to watch episodes of the "Sea Hunt" television series imitating his childhood idol Lloyd Bridges. "From that point on, acting was in my blood," says John.
Years later, John received his theater degree from Providence College in Providence, RI. John was the only graduating senior in the Theater Department that year, he jokingly recalls, thereby, winning the year's Theater Award.
John's television career initially began as a twelve-year veteran of daytime television. His daytime shows include "The Young and The Restless," "All My Children," "Loving," "Santa Barbara," and "The Edge of Night."
Outside of television and feature films, O'Hurley is also an accomplished stage actor. His love of the theater has led him in starring roles on the national tours of "Pirates of Penzance," "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes," and "Brigadoon."
In March 2007, he took the lead role in the Wynn Las Vegas's production of "Spamalot," in which he played King Arthur. He starred on Broadway and on National Tour as Billy Flynn in Chicago. In July 2008 he reprised his role as King Arthur in the Los Angeles production of "Spamalot" at the Ahmanson Theatre.
In 2005, he was on the first season of "Dancing With the Stars," where he was the runner up with professional partner Charlotte Jorgensen.
When not performing, John maintains his single digit handicap by playing on the Celebrity Players Tour, as well as in other key events like the BMW Charity Celebrity Pro-Am and the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic.
