You know John Daly as the host of the internationally syndicated show Real-TV and "House Detective" on HGTV. But John Daly is also a journalist, author, and public speaker. His career spans more than three decades.
John graduated from Providence College in Providence, Rhode Island in 1978 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and the desire to become a writer. After two years in public relations and advertising, John began his news career; first as a newspaper reporter for the Norwich (CT) Bulletin and the New London (CT) Day.
Within a year, John was a television reporter in New Bern, North
Carolina at WCTI-TV 12. He embraced the job so enthusiastically that
he was arrested for an investigative piece on pay illegally withheld
from garment workers. The case against John was dismissed, but the
victimized workers received all of their back pay plus damages.
During that time, John completed a graduate course at Columbia University in New York City for print journalists moving into broadcast journalism.
Two years later, WFSB TV in Hartford, Connecticut, John's home town,
hired him away. John also covered politics and the economy while
anchoring the morning and noon newscasts, sometimes working fourteen
hours a day.
Cathy Ray, John's co-anchor says, "John is so solid and
well-informed. Whether it was local news or news from Bosnia and
Chechnya, I could count on John."
According to Cheri Brownlee, Co-Executive Producer, Real-TV: "John
is a regular guy who really enjoys people. He can walk up to people
who recognize him from television and have a conversation with them.
I can't tell you how much that meant to the success of Real-TV."
In 2001, John began Daly Productions, LLC., a business development firm to help new technologies and start-up businesses by using Johnís contacts in entertainment, sports, business and politics. John is currently working with: TraVerus Travel (www.traverus.net), an internet travel company; Medsonix, an acoustic wave medical technology that relieves pain and promotes circulation; and Nitrox, a technology that can save vast amounts of water for golf courses and agriculture.
