Of course, Peter is best-known for hosting over 5,000 episodes of the
five-time Emmy Award winning game show, Hollywood Squares. After
appearing in a commercial for Kelloggs, Peter was asked to audition for the
show, and the rest is television history. With guests
including Paul Lynde, Rose Marie, Charlie Weaver, George Gobel, Wally Cox, and some of
the greatest entertainers in history, Hollywood Squares entertained
audiences for over 15 years! Following Hollywood Squares, Peter hosted the
game show All Star Blitz and the audience participation series Fantasy
with Leslie Uggams.
Peter has guest-starred on many major television
series such as Love Boat, Lou Grant, WKRP In Cincinnati, and
Teenage Witch. He's also appeared in several mini-series. He is proud of his performance
in HMS Pinafore with the London Symphony Orchestra, which has been seen on
the big screen as well on television.
Peter does many "in house" corporate industrial
videos including Home Shopping Network, Lincoln-Mercury, and the U.S.
Department of the Interior. His deep resonant voice, excellent diction and
and warmth lend themselves perfectly to this media.
With such a profound musical background and a great love of music,
Peter thoroughly enjoyed hosting
a series of 12 shows for the Disney Channel, Big Bands From Disneyland,
with such celebrated bands and leaders as Woody Herman, Lionel Hampton, and
Buddy Rich. He has produced and toured in big band shows featuring Tex Beneke and
his Orchestra, the Modernaires with Paula
Kelly Jr., and singers such as Helen O'Connell, Helen Forrest, and Frankie Laine.
