BuzzWorthy Radio: Rossi Morreale!
Voted one of People Magazine’s “Sexiest Men Alive” for 2003, Rossi Morreale is currently host of ABC’s “Dating in the Dark.” Previously he hosted the reality singing competition “Can You Duet” and “Temptation,” a half-hour syndicated game show based on the global game show hit, “Sale of the Century.” Prior to “Temptation,” Morreale hosted “Foody Call” for The Style Network, “Riding with Rossi” for The Travel Channel, where he helped celebrate the country's continuing love affair with the motorized vehicle. From monster trucks to classic car expos and motorcycle rallies, the series enthralled audiences with some of the most amped-up machines on the planet. A “good ol’ Southern boy” at heart, Morreale was born and raised in Arkansas, where he attended the University of Arkansas and was starting wide receiver for the Arkansas Razorbacks. An avid sports player and viewer, he soon found a home on the G4 network as host of “Sweat,” a feature-oriented sports show where he interviewed many high-profile athletes from Shaquille O’Neal to Tony Hawk. After “Sweat” he moved to TLC, where he became host of “Junkyard Mega-Wars,” followed by “On-Air with Ryan Seacrest” and Spike TV’s “Midnight Spike.” For the latter two shows he appeared as correspondent and host, rubbing elbows with Hollywood celebrities and music superstars. Morreale’s hosting abilities run the gamut from sports programs to geeky mechanic shows to hob-knobbing with Hollywood elite. A host with no bounds, he’s equally at home trailing Tony Hawk on a skateboard or sipping champagne on a red carpet.
