Being a game show host isn’t all fun and games. It takes skill, talent, and an inherent ability to put complete strangers at ease during what may be the most exciting moment of their lives.
As a corporate entertainer and voiceover artist for over 30 years, Martello has served as the announcer for some of the biggest names in the business. Here’s Your Host! takes an in-depth look into the dying art of television hosting and reveals for the first time, the tricks of the trade.
Featuring interviews with ten vastly talented television personalities, Andy compares and contrasts the hosting styles of well-known game show greats. From Joey Fatone to Jerry Springer, Marc Summers to Mark Walberg, and George Gray to the great Todd Newton, Martello explores the science behind game show magic and offers insights into what has kept these extraordinary talents on your television screens for decades.
"You're the only person who knows the differences we all bring, which I find fascinating!"
