Carson Daly

Host Bio

Carson Daly is a pioneer of pop culture across a multitude of media, including network television, radio, the recording industry and digital.

Daly is currently hosting and producing the 13th season of the NBC hit series "The Voice." The show has received six consecutive Emmy nominations for Outstanding Reality Competition Program and won in 2013, 2015 and 2016. Additionally, "The Voice" also received a People's Choice Award for Favorite Competition TV Show for the fourth year in a row as well as a Producers Guild Award for Outstanding Producer of Competition Television for the fifth year in a row.

Daly's long-running late night NBC series, "Last Call with Carson Daly," is currently entering its 17th season.

For seven years Daly served as host at his top-rated morning-drive radio program on 97.1 AMP-FM Los Angeles.

In 2013, Carson began as co-host of the "Today" show, providing communication between viewers and the show in the Orange Room, as well as delivering original content and reporting.

Additionally, this year marked the 15th year that Daly and Universal Media Studios have produced "NBC's New Year's Eve with Carson Daly." Past musical performances have included Rihanna, Jay Z, Green Day, Elton John, Alicia Keys, Katy Perry, Ludacris, Mary J. Blige, Avril Lavigne, Panic! at the Disco, the Ting Tings and Lenny Kravitz.

Daly began his career in radio in the early 1990s, quickly moving up the ranks as an on-air DJ in five cities within his first five years. He quickly landed one of the most coveted positions in the business - the early evening voice of LA's influential and highly rated alternative rock station KROQ-FM. MTV soon recognized his talent and brought him to New York.

As host and executive producer of MTV's "Total Request Live (TRL)," Daly transformed an afternoon music video program into a must-stop on the publicity circuit for musicians, movie stars and entertainers. It was Daly's guy-next-door charm that made him so appealing as he entered living rooms daily to offer exactly what the audience desired.

In 2002, Daly's loyal fans followed him to NBC and tuned into his late-night television show, "Last Call with Carson Daly." While the show boasts diverse bookings in the worlds of entertainment, politics and sports, it is the progressive music bookings that have earned Daly his bragging rights among the late-night crowd. Since its premiere, "Last Call" has been the show that gave many of the hottest bands their first break on U.S. television, including the Killers, Maroon 5, Ray LaMontagne, Modest Mouse, 30 Seconds to Mars, B.o.B and many more.

At the start of the 11th season, music network Fuse TV acquired the rights to rebroadcast "Last Call" the following day. New and expanded "Last Call" content, including interviews and musical performances, also appear online on
