I, for one, am sick of hearing "Carson Daly? Who is that?!" Doesn't anyone watch MTV? Yea, I think so... well, take the time to turn on MTV at 9pm EST to watch Total Request. (that cutie there, is Carson. :)
Full Name: Carson Jones (or is it James? Hmmm...) Daly
Birthdate: June 22, 1973
Homestate: Born in Culver City, California, but was raised in Santa Monica. Now, he resides in New York.
Family: Was raised my his mother, a former dancer and actress. He also has a sister, Quinn. (now, about a cat and dog? Who knows...)
Single?: Sorry Guys... Its pretty much confirmed that he's with Jennifer Love Hewitt. (aw… isnt that cute?)
He graduated from Santa Monica High School. Went to college at Loyola Marymount University, where he studied theology. He soon dropped out to pursue his golf career.
He loves Golf. Was on his High School golf team, and aspired to go pro. (Once he played with Tiger Woods.) All that changed when he took the job as an intern at KCMJ in Palm Springs.
He quickly got promoted to producer of the morning show. He stayed this way for 6 months, while working nights as talent at another station in San Diego, 100 miles away.
He soon landed a job at San Francisco's Live 105 FM. Carson found himself selling all his worldly belongings and hitting the road for the Bay Area.
Then, in 1995, Carson grabbed the "drive home" spot at KOME (radio station.). Lucky him, his first assignment was covering the 1995 MTV Video Music Awards live from New York City !
The next summer, Carson headed back home to L.A., where he was the nighttime DJ at KROQ FM. It didn't take long for MTV to pick up Carson, and send him off to New York City to work at the MTV Studios.
At MTV, Carson began helping out on two different shows. He was hosting 12 Angry Viewers, and co-hosted MTV Live with Ananda. He stayed this way for awhile, before leaving 12 Angry Viewers, and taking over MTV Live himself.
MTV Live NO-More: What ever happened to that show? I loved it too much for them to just end it. (Fear not- he's still around.) After hosting Total Request, and having his own ˝ show down at the Summer Share '98, he's back in New York City where he hosts Total Request.
