Talk show hosts are some of the most influential people in the entertainment industry. They tell the news to millions of people every day, and unlike news reporters, they are expected to insert their own opinions into what they say. So they have a profound impact in the way we perceive what’s happening in the world. TV Talk Show Host Day is a day to celebrate your favorite host and all the hosts you love! This holiday is celebrated on the birthday of Johnny Carson, who hosted the tonight show from 1962-1992. Carson is an inspiration to many of the talk show hosts working today. His style has been the model for modern late night shows and is still used to this day.
