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 20th season of the NBC hit series “The Voice.” The show has received nine consecutive Emmy nominations for Outstanding Reality Competition Program and won in 2013, 2015, 2016 and 2017. Additionally, “The Voice” also received a People’s Choice Award for Favorite Competition TV Show for five years in a row as well as a Producers Guild Award for Outstanding Producer of Competition Television for seven years in a row.
Daly joined “TODAY” in 2013 and is the host of “TODAY’s” digital studio, PopStart. Daly’s exclusive interviews have made headlines, including his interviews with Kevin Love, Sean Combs and with Fleetwood Mac in March 2014, where the band announced their reunion.
In 2019, after an 18 season run, Daly wound down his long-running late night NBC series, “Last Call with Carson Daly.” For nearly 20 years and 2,000 episodes, “Last Call” garnered acclaim for its documentary style, emphasis on exceptional storytelling, and status as late-night TV’s unofficial music tastemaker.
From 2010-2017 Daly served as host of his top-rated morning-drive radio program on 97.1 AMP-FM Los Angeles. In July 2017 Daly announced he would be stepping down from his role on the morning show to focus on other areas of his expansive career. He continues to host a weekly syndicated radio program “The Daly Download” for Entercom.
Additionally, 2020 year marked the 19th 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 L.A.’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.
Daly, his wife Siri and their four children live in the greater New York area.
