Mark L. Walberg has been an American television personality for decades, and this January he will reprise his role as host of USA Network’s Temptation Island.
Walberg is best known as the long-time host of Antiques Roadshow – PBS’s highest-rated, prime-time original program. He started his TV career as an assistant at Dick Clark Productions and quickly moved in front of the camera as the announcer for the popular game show Shop ‘til You Drop. He then hosted the sports magazine show Burnt Toast. It was there that the late Brandon Tartikoff noticed his work and executive produced the nationally syndicated series The Mark Walberg Show. Throughout the years Walberg has hosted hits including Temptation Island, Test the Nation, Moment of Truth and Russian Roulette. But Walberg isn’t just a gameshow host -- he also won The Weakest Link as a celebrity contestant, playing for the charity organization, Goodwill SoCaL.
On the creative side, Walberg created and executive produced Sunday Dinner, the first original series for the Odyssey Network. In 2014, Walberg executive produced and hosted the Emmy-nominated special Buried History with Mark Walberg.
As a moderator, host and speaker, Walberg has worked in the corporate world for over 12 years, hosting meetings for organizations including Abbvie, American Pharmacists Association, Association of General Contractors, Pacific Life; and conducting one-on-one interviews with personalities such as Michael Strahan, Alex Rodriguez, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, Michael Phelps, Julianne Hough, Sofia Vergara, Chip and Joanna Gaines, Robin Roberts and more.
Walberg has been married to actress, Robbi Morgan Walberg for 30 years. Together they have two children – son Morgan, 26, who is a Naval Aviator and daughter Goldie, 22, who is a professional ballet dancer with the Kansas City Ballet.
