Larry Emdur Books & Biography
LARRY EMDUR is TV's Mr Nice Guy and one of Australia's loveable larrikins. At 19, Larry got his first job in television with Seven Nightly News, but he was never going to be a conventional broadcast news journalist.
Over the next forty years, Larry would find his niche in Australian television, hosting popular game shows including The Main Event, Wheel of Fortune and a record-breaking 1500 episodes of The Price Is Right over three series. In 2007, along with Kylie Gillies, Larry became the co-host of Seven's The Morning Show, a programme that has dominated morning-TV ratings for over 15 years. In 2021, Larry also became the host of one of Australia's top-rating quiz shows, The Chase Australia.
Away from television, Larry has been heavily involved in charity work, partaking in countless events including two cross-country Variety club bashes and various charity motorcycle rallies. He's also been an ambassador for the Raise Foundation youth mentoring programme and sailed in three Sydney to Hobart Yacht Races to raise money for the Humpty Dumpty Foundation.
At the age of 50, Larry was crowned Men's Health Celebrity Man of the Year, becoming the magazine's oldest ever cover guy. That year, he also failed miserably on Dancing with the Stars, but he'd rather not talk about that.
