H.E.A.R.honors Carson Daly

He's cool, down with the fans and can chat with gangsta rappers and politicos with equal ease, all of which is why Carson Daly has ventured out into his very own talk show, Last Call with Carson Daly. But how did this California boy become the ambassador of all things hip? Daly was born in Santa Monica, California, with a strong Christian background, so strong he even contemplated becoming a priest. When he was just six, he lost his father to bladder cancer. His mother, Pattie Daly Caruso, host of the Palm Springs talk show Valley Views, later remarried Richard Caruso, a golf-shop owner. Caruso inspired the young Daly to take up golf, which he contemplated pursuing professionally. He was so determined to become the next Arnold Palmer that he won a golf scholarship to Loyola Marymount University, but he quit after a year to try his luck as a golf pro. It was a chance internship at radio station KCMJ that changed his career course. He was soon offered a job at station KOME in the Bay Area before moving to L.A.'s KROQ. MTV offered him a job as VJ in 1996, and the rest is TRL history.

H.E.A.R.is thrilled to honor Carson for his great talent and generous compassion for appearing in H.E.A.R.'s new public service announcment (PSA) with Missy Elliott shot during MTV Spring Break. Click HEAR to view the new PSA.
