The Billy Bush Show
Named as one of
Esquire magazine's "10 Men," Billy Bush is the co-anchor of
"Access Hollywood," the daily entertainment newsmagazine
currently in its 12th season of providing the most comprehensive
coverage of entertainment news and personalities on television.
Bush joined the program as East Coast correspondent in December
2001, and was promoted to co-anchor in June 2004. In 2007, Bush
hosted the popular NBC talent competition show "Grease - You're
the One That I Want."
Through his role at "Access Hollywood," countless high-profile
red carpet events including the Golden Globes, Grammys, and
Academy Awards as well as hosted ABC's live pre-show for the
2004, 2005 and 2006 Academy Awards and "2006 Emmy Red Carpet
Special." In addition, he reported for NBC at the 2004 Summer
Olympics in Greece and hosted "Access Hollywood's" coverage of
the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, and also covered the 2008
Summer Olympics in Beijing.
Bush began his career hosting the afternoon drive show on WLKZ-FM
in New Hampshire, later moving to Washington, D.C., where he
hosted the midday show on WARW-FM. In March of 1997, Bush
brought his award-winning talent for entertainment and humor to
WWZZ-FM (Z104) in D.C. as host of "Billy Bush and the Bush
League Morning Show," which aired until January 2001. Before
joining "Access Hollywood," Bush was a correspondent for WNBC-TV's
"Today in New York" morning show.
Although Bush maintains a busy work schedule, he regularly makes
time for philanthropic endeavors. He has served on Operation
Smile's Board of Governors for over four years, a non-profit
organization whose mission is to repair childhood facial
deformities while building public and private partnerships that
advocate for sustainable healthcare systems for children and
families. In addition, Bush also proudly serves on the Board of
Directors for the Lollipop Theater Network, a non-profit
organization that arranges private screenings of newly released
movies for children suffering from debilitating illnesses. These
children are usually confined to hospitals or other secluded
environments preventing them from going to movie theaters.
Bush earned a bachelor's degree in international studies and
government at Colby College in Maine where he was a two-time
captain of the men's lacrosse team. He resides in Los Angeles
with his wife, Sydney, and three daughters.

Born and raised in L.A.'s San Fernando Valley, Koz initially picked up the saxophone as a means of gaining entry into his big brother's band. But what began as a ploy became a lifelong obsession. Now, with Saxophonic, Koz has created the most adventurous and sax-intensive recording of his career -- a scintillating fusion of R&B, funk, jazz and pop, with well-conceived detours into hip hop instrumentalism, bebop, electronica and African folk. Additionally, the saxophonist hosts a weekly syndicated radio show heard Sunday Mornings 8-10 on WBAZ, The Dave Koz Radio Show, that features artist interviews and music.
