He is also a nationally syndicated radio host, and has previously served as a sportscaster, news anchor and reporter. Besides the piano, he also plays the keyboard, guitar, saxophone and sings. He is also known by many as the long time host of the Entertainment Tonight Show.
Tesh currently has a nationally-syndicated radio show called the John Tesh Radio Show, "This show was created for my wife, (actress Connie Sellecca)," John says. "She's one of those people where, you look at her side of the bed (and see) six issues of Prevention magazine and five months of Oprah magazine . . . (she) never has time to read any of that stuff . . . I feel there's enough entertainment there - nobody needs to know the latest in the trial of Anna Nicole Smith from us, or who the celebrity birthdays are. So I said, 'Let's just do something that moves people forward in their life, and we'll do the work for them.'"
John feels the show now airs on about 250 stations nationwide, primarily on adult contemporary music stations; select pieces of "Intelligence for Your Life" are broken up and distributed in short form to other radio stations (including talk radio formats) as well, for use on morning shows.
