Carson Daly      

Television Host & Radio Personality Known For "TRL," "Last Call With Carson Daly" & "The Voice"

Carson Jones Daly is an American television host, radio personality, producer, and television personality. Prior to 2002, Daly was a VJ on MTV's Total Request Live, and a DJ for the Southern California-based radio station 106.7 KROQ-FM. In 2002, Daly joined NBC, where he began hosting and producing the late night talk show "Last Call with Carson Daly," and occasionally hosting special event programming for NBC, such as the Macy's Fourth of July fireworks show, and executive producing "New Year's Eve with Carson Daly" from Times Square beginning in 2003.

Daly has since been involved in more prominent roles at NBC, such as becoming host for its reality music competition "The Voice" in 2011, and joining NBC's morning show Today as a social media correspondent in 2013, with his role increasing in subsequent years becoming a co-host. Daly has also served as a radio DJ. As a producer of "The Voice," Daly has won four Emmy Awards for Outstanding Reality-Competition Program, first in 2013 and again from 2015, 2016, and 2017. When social media correspondent Christina Millian departed the show, Daly became the sole host.

Daly appears in a brief but pivotal role in the first episode of "My Name Is Earl." While in the hospital after being hit by a car, Earl learns about karma from watching an episode of "Last Call with Carson Daly" where Daly claims that his success is a direct result of doing good things for other people. Earl is thus inspired by Carson Daly to turn his own life around, and sets out to make up for his many past wrongs. Carson Daly also had a small role on Dave Chappelle's show. In September 2013, Daly became the orange room anchor (social media reporter) on the "Today Show" and also serves as a fill-in anchor for Willie Geist and the show's weekend edition (Weekend Today). Daly is also a founding partner with Jonathan Rifkind, Jonathan B. Davis and Bam Margera of an independent record label, 456 Enterprise & Entertainment, which released the "Viva La Bands" compilations.

Daly has opened up about his struggle with generalized anxiety disorder.
