The John Tesh Radio Show brings intelligence for your life to Seattle’s AM 880 KIXI listeners.
Weekdays from 10am to 3pm you can enjoy your favorite KIXI music, and get valuable information on how to make life simpler, better, and more enjoyable. From personal growth and relationships, to health, fitness, work, and having fun, the John Tesh Radio Show will “help make you the smartest person in the room”. John’s staff of researchers finds the golden nuggets of information that can help enrich your life.
John Tesh’s highly successful and varied career path includes a 10-year run as anchor on Entertainment Tonight, six hit public television specials, including his landmark Live At Red Rocks in 1994, a string of #1 radio hits, his popular nationally syndicated radio show “Intelligence For Your Life” with 8.2 million listeners, and a high profile advertising and marketing company. His musical accolades include sales of seven million CDs, a Keyboard Magazine Award; a 2003 Grammy nomination for “Best Pop Instrumental Album” for his double CD The Power of Love; and gold certification for his Live At Red Rocks album.
A self-proclaimed school “band geek” playing trumpet in marching and jazz bands in junior high and high school, Tesh got hooked on Hendrix and the Doors, but also has fond memories of his parents spinning Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett and Count Basie at parties in their Long Island home.
Tesh’s advertising and marketing company, TeshMedia, handles Fortune 500 companies, including General Motors, Home Depot, Macy’s, Kohl’s Petsmart, Amway, and Geico Insurance.
For the past 10 years, Tesh’s dreams have also branched out to include Tesh’s syndicated radio show “Intelligence For Your Life,” which reaches more than 8.2 million listeners per week across the U.S., Canada and the U.K. Tesh’s book “Intelligence for Your Life: Powerful Lessons for Personal Growth”, has spent time on the New York Times, USA Today, Publisher’s Weekly, Wall Street Journal & Amazon.com best-seller lists. The award-winning daily and weekly show he calls “purpose driven radio”, recently secured the trademarks for three more categories in their “Intelligence for….” family. “Intelligence for Your Health,” “Intelligence for Your Pets” and “Intelligence for Your Love Life” have been added to Tesh’s core brand, and will be developed into stand-alone content-rich websites with products designed around the “Intelligence” Tesh and his staff have gathered in the 10 years since they launched the show.
The impetus for “Intelligence for Your Life” was Tesh’s wife, actress Connie Sellecca, whose nightstand was covered with issues of Oprah’s Magazine, “O”. “We wanted to create a show for people like her, who don’t have time to read all that, but are interested in being better in everything they do,” he says. “There is so much information out there, but not enough information about how to find it, and where to go with it. The idea was to create a business where we could be curators who pick and choose the information that we think our audience would like to hear about. If you couldn’t get to those magazines, we, along with the researchers we hired, could do it for you. People have called me the “Oprah of radio”, but the difference is that our pieces are very short, —all geared at motivating listeners to move forward…it’s all about passion and purpose. If something I share can help save someone’s marriage, inspire someone to go to the doctor to get checked out, or spend more time with their kids, I’ve done my job.”
Listen to the John Tesh Radio Show weekdays from 10am to 3pm. It’s great KIXI music and intelligence for your life on Seattle’s AM 880 KIXI.
