Larry Emdur Wiki – Larry Emdur Biography
Larry Emdur is an Australian television personality. He is currently co-host of The Morning Show alongside Kylie Gillies and host of The Chase Australia. The two also hosted the Australian version of Celebrity Splash!. Formerly, he was the host of the Australian version of the game show The Price Is Right from 1993 to 1998 and later 2003 to 2005 on the Nine Network and then again when the show returned to the Seven Network on 7 May 2012. The show was canceled later in 2012. He is known to Australian audiences for his hosting duties on several other game shows, including Cash Bonanza, and Wheel of Fortune. He hosted Hey Hey it’s Saturday five times, once in 1994, twice in 1998, and twice, back to back, in 1999, and substituted as host of It Takes Two once in 2006 and again in 2007. He has also hosted Celebrity Dog School on Network Ten.
He is recognized as the host of The Price Is Right on the Nine Network, which he hosted from 1993 to 1998, before its cancellation. It was then revived on June 23, 2003, and ran until 24 November 2005 due to poor ratings and high costs of production. To commemorate the United States version’s 40th season in 2011–12, on a July 2011 trip to the United States, he called down a contestant and served as a guest host for Cliff Hangers, under the recommendation of host Drew Carey. He also modeled a trip to Australia in one of the two Showcases that are presented on the United States version. He was one of the numerous hosts who have hosted the format to appear as part of the 40th-anniversary celebration.
He filled in for Daryl Somers on the family show Hey Hey It’s Saturday. After being “rested” by the Nine Network following the cancellation of The Price Is Right, he became the host of the Seven Network’s Wheel of Fortune. While in the first few weeks of his run with Seven’s Wheel in the 5:00 pm weekday timeslot, he continued to appear simultaneously on Nine in re-runs of The Price Is Right, until Bert’s Family Feud took over the 5:30 pm timeslot on Nine in mid-February 2006. On 19 June 2006, news emerged of Wheel of Fortune’s cancellation at the end of the 2006 season. Channel 10’s Rove Live then started a campaign to “Save Larry Emdur”, although Seven soon put an end to Rove’s jokes by issuing a statement that Emdur would be staying with the Seven Network. He has also been a fill-in host for It Takes Two and has filled in for Andrew O’Keefe on Weekend Sunrise and David Koch on Sunrise. He signed up with Network Ten in 2007. He had joined up to host a new show Celebrity Dog School, which began airing in February.
He was invited to participate in the 2009 Sydney to Hobart by finance commentator Anthony Bell. Upon reaching Hobart, Emdur said on The Morning Show that he may never set foot on a boat again. However, in 2010 he signed on to participate in the Sydney to Hobart again. His crew on the yacht ‘Investec LOYAL’ finished second. On 4 February 2011, Emdur renewed his contract with the Seven Network, reportedly worth in excess of $800,000 a year. This contract stopped him from defecting to the Nine Network to co-host Today. The contract allows him to stay on as co-host of The Morning Show and ‘other opportunities’. In February 2010, Seven announced that he would co-host Weekend Sunrise on Saturday mornings alongside Samantha Armytage, and he held this position until the end of 2010. He is also currently a regular fill-in co-host for David Koch on Sunrise and Matt Doran on Weekend Sunrise if they are away on holidays, sick, or on assignment. In September 2013, he produced and hosted a pilot for a late-night talk show titled Larry on Late in Sydney, which featured guests Guy Sebastian, Samantha Armytage, and Manon Youdale. Seven Network passed on the show after viewing the pilot.
In December 2013, he was a crew member aboard the racing supermaxi yacht Perpetual Loyal in the 2013 Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race, with his other celebrity crew members, Karl Stefanovic, Guillaume Brahimi, Tom Slingsby, Phil Waugh, and Jude Bolton. In 2014, he and co-host of The Morning Show, Kylie Gillies, whose studio is across from the Sydney Lindt Cafe, were able to view and report on the events of the Martin Place siege, as it unfolded, before transmission handed over to the Seven Network Melbourne studios. He appeared in the fifteenth season of Dancing with the Stars. He out of school at age 15, he started his career as a copyboy at The Sydney Morning Herald, before moving into television, where at age 17 he became Australia’s youngest national newsreader, presenting the overnight news for Seven Network in Australia.
