An amiable television host if there ever was one, E! Entertainment television personality Todd Newton first caught the eye of viewers as the host of Coming Attractions (E!'s movie-previews show) before moving on to host Talk Soup and E! News Live in addition to various other awards and premiere specials on the popular pay-cable channel. Newton got his start in the entertainment industry as a radio personality on stations in St. Louis, New York, and Los Angeles, and is widely known for his dynamic public-speaking skills. Outside of his work for E! Television, the St. Louis native has also entered the game show arena as the host of Whammy and Hollywood Showdown. In addition, Newton hosts a live stage version of the long-running television game show The Price Is Right.
