PB: I was teaching broadcast news writing and announcing at College of the Desert in Palm Desert in the mid 90's. Carson Daly was a student of mine who either wanted my anchor job at the local ABC affiliate, or he wanted to become an MTV host. I told him to do an internship on a morning show at a Palm Springs radio station with a funny guy named Chris Kimmel, who was actually Jimmy Kimmel. They both moved to LA and the rest is history.
