An affable television personality who wields the polish of old-school game show hosts like Bob Eubanks and Wink Martindale -- and whose early resume includes a stint as a street mime -- Tom Bergeron was born in Haverhill, Mass., on May 6, 1955.

After kick-starting his career in radio, Bergeron made the transition to television, eventually landing a high-profile gig on "Hollywood Squares" and earning a Daytime Emmy for his efforts. Later, he took over as host of "America's Funniest Home Videos."

But Bergeron would get even more prime-time exposure -- and a trio of Emmy nominations -- as host of the hit reality competition "Dancing with the Stars," a celebrity-driven dance-off that showcased his witty banter. Bergeron also serves as an occasional stand-in for Meredith Vieira on "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire."
