 John Tesh Biography

In an impressive and eclectic career that spans more than 25 years, John Tesh is known worldwide as a leading and respected figure in the entertainment and broadcasting industries. In 1996, after 10 years as co-host of Entertainment Tonight, he surprised many by leaving the highly visible position to pursue his career as a fulltime musician. With music and radio going hand in hand, Tesh has gone on to conquer yet another media format as one of the most successful syndicated radio show hosts in the country with “The John Tesh Radio Show: Music and Intelligence for Your Life.”

“I like to call it ‘purpose-driven radio’,” says Tesh of his award-winning daily and weekly show that is heard on over 240 stations nationwide by more than eight million listeners. The show is owned and distributed by The TeshMedia Group and airs in all dayparts, on multiple formats. He created the show for his wife, actress Connie Selleca, because, “Her nightstand was covered with the last 20 months of Oprah magazine. We wanted to create a show for that person, the person who doesn’t have time to find all that stuff, but is interested in being better in everything that he or she does.” The show is full of genuine advice and tips with a mix of humor and earnestness. “We appeal to people who want to make a change in their life, whether it’s to be a better parent or a better pet owner.”

Some of these tips: Always wear blue to important meetings as it is a subversively powerful color; throw dishwashing sponges (a haven for germ breeding) into the dishwasher or microwave oven for sanitizing every other day; and, the amount of time one should spend brushing his own teeth is the same duration of the song “Yellow Submarine.”

Accolades from radio colleagues and listeners confirm his popularity, “The John Tesh Radio Show” was recently named the “2006 Radio Ink Reader’s Choice Award” winner in not one, but two categories: “Best Daily Music Program” and “Best Weekly Music Program.”

"Planting seeds and encouraging people with the program and my music is a method with which I am truly comfortable. ‘Music and Intelligence for Your Life’ is a safe haven for family listening. Children, men and women of all ages can gain something from the show." The message of his radio show follows Tesh to his live performances, both in the talking he does on stage and in the “Intelligent Life Game Show.”

As of March 2008, Tesh added author to his list of professional accomplishments with the publication of his first book, Intelligence for Your Life. In this uplifting and challenging book, he shares his own personal story of how he has applied certain principles to live a complete and passionate life.

Music has always been one of Tesh’s main passions. Three of his releases, A Deeper Faith, Christmas Worship and Power of Love all resided on the Billboard Pop and Christian Music charts and Power of Love was nominated for a 2003 Grammy for “Best Pop Instrumental Album.” He has also released A Deeper Faith 2 and his book The Power of Prayer and Worship. His acclaimed, family-friendly CD and DVD, Red Rocks Platinum, was also a hit national television special, and Tesh’s first live Red Rocks concert from 1993 was a best selling and RIAA Gold-certified CD.

"Twelve years ago, in a driving rain storm, with my wife and two-month-old daughter in the audience, my life changed forever at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre. The Public Television program we filmed that evening went on to become one of PBS’s most successful fundraising specials ever. It also enabled me to make a giant leap out of television and into the world of music, my first love."

Despite his various professional hats, Tesh considers being a father and husband his “greatest accomplishment.” "When you have a 12-year-old little girl in your house, you suddenly realize that you need to pick a vocation that the kid can actually share with the rest of her class."

A successful television host, recording artist, music director and syndicated radio show host, Tesh has won numerous awards. With three gold albums and a career that includes six Emmys, two Grammy nominations, an Associated Press Award for investigative journalism, a Keyboard Magazine Award, several number one radio hits, three hit PBS specials and two tours as an Olympic announcer/composer, Tesh shows talent in many facets of the entertainment industry. In 2007, this Renaissance man is also in the pre-production stages of his next PBS special and in the process of writing his second book.
