The six-time Emmy winning radio and television host and Grammy nominated musician offers up his ‘on-the-air’ brand of life-coaching with new DVD & CD projects and his second book, Intelligence for Your Life: Powerful Lessons for Personal Growth.
In his book, Intelligence for Your Life (Thomas Nelson, Inc.), Tesh uplifts and inspires readers to find the deepest desires of their hearts, create a plan for pursuing their dreams, overcome crippling fears and inspire those around them.
But Intelligence for Your Life is more than a guide to informed living; it is also a memoir. Tesh shares his own story here, revealing the passions that have driven him and given shape to his extraordinary professional and personal life, and how he’s implemented the tools that he talks about on The John Tesh Radio Show every day.
“I like to call it ‘purpose-driven radio,’” says Tesh of his award- winning daily and weekly show that is heard on over 300 stations nationwide by more than 8 million people. Listeners tune into the syndicated show each week to hear him warmly impart in-depth “intelligence for your life” – tips on how to earn your boss’s trust, fight jet lag, get out of debt, find your life’s calling or even discover the power of prayer.
“Planting seeds and encouraging people with the program and my music is a method with which I am truly comfortable,” says Tesh. “‘Music and Intelligence For Your Life’ is a safe haven for family listening. Children, men and women of all ages can gain something from the show.”
With his staff of 10 full-time researchers, Tesh has uncovered a wealth of practical information and life-change choices throughout the years. He now combines that knowledge with some incredible personal experiences for this first book in what promises to be a successful ongoing series.
If you follow his career, it becomes obvious that music has always been Tesh’s main passion. Three of Tesh’s releases, A Deeper Faith, Christmas Worship and Power of Love all resided on the Billboard Pop and Christian Music charts and Power of Love was nominated for a 2003 Grammy for “Best Pop Instrumental Album.” With the release of A Deeper Faith 2 and his book “The Power of Prayer and Worship,” Tesh solidified his reputation as an artist not only providing excellent music, but creating projects deep from his heart that “mean” something, making a difference in this world. His acclaimed, family- friendly CD and DVD, Red Rocks Platinum, was also a hit national television special and Tesh’s first Live At Red Rocks concert from 1993 was a best selling and RIAA Gold-certified CD.
Tesh’s talent, charisma and brilliant musicianship first took PBS by storm with LIVE AT RED ROCKS and that change success quickly gave the former Entertainment Tonight anchor a solid fan base to showcase his musical talents. Concert audiences will once again have the opportunity to experience Tesh’s energy, which he first displayed on PBS, with a new inspiration and reflection of where culture blends with his renewed musical passion!
Now, more than a decade later, Tesh seems to have reinvented himself through these compelling new projects. As a television host, recording artist, music director, author and syndicated radio show host – John Tesh has explored and succeeded in all of these facets of the entertainment industry. With three gold albums and a career that includes six Emmys, two Grammy nominations, an Associated Press Award for investigative journalism, a Keyboard Magazine Award, several number one radio hits, three hit PBS specials and two tours as an Olympic announcer/composer; and some change it’s obvious that Tesh has a drive for versatility.
