The Success of Super Kids earned Bergeron other hosting duties at the station, including the daily broadcast of “four Today” and the Emmy Award-winning children’s series Rap Around. In 1987 he was tapped to host People Are Talking, the station’s popular morning series, where he remained for the next six years. While He was on the show Tom also began the city’s top morning radio show on WBZ-AM in 1990. In 1993, Bergeron made the leap from local to national television as host of upstart cable network FX’s Breakfast Time. His sardonic humor and anything-goes approach made him an instant hit with viewers. Two years later, the series moved over to the FOX Broadcast network and changed to Fox After Breakfast, reaching an even larger audience. He proved up to the challenge, and following his stint with FOX, Bergeron assisted as a guest anchor of Good Morning America. Executive Producers for Hollywood Squares Tapped Bergeron as the clean host of the show following an exhaustive seem for someone with the right combination of wit, charm and patience – after all, keeping nine laugh-grabbing celebrities in line isn’t for the faint of heart. Tom nabbed the 2000 Daytime Emmy award for “Outstanding Game Show Host,” an honor he shared with Bob Barker. Amidst all the congratulations for his win, Bergeron added his usual comic spin: “I don’t know who the judges were or what they were drinking.”
Bergeron is also host of another widely-watched television show, America’s Funniest Home Videos, parlaying what began as a half-season gig into a four-year stint. As he sees it, “It truly is like I get to oversee a video buffet, where individuals can go several moments an hour and be guaranteed a good laugh. How a lot of places on TV can you go where that’s still true?” In addition to that job, he made a splash this summer as host of ABC’s hit Dancing with the Stars.
