musician, TV personality
Birthplace: Garden City, New York
Hunky yet wholesome, Tesh has had a successful career in sports broadcasting, hosting TV shows such as Entertainment Tonight (cohost, 1986?96), and performing his new age musical compositions in concert and recording studio. He has released nine albums on his own label, including Monterey Nights (1993), and has also written musical themes for sports programming, such as NBC's NFL Live and the Tour de France. The collections Sax on the Beach and Sax by the Fire, produced by the John Tesh Project, feature endearingly corny arrangements of pop songs. He is married to actress Connie Sellecca.
