John Tesh has earned his net worth through his success in the entertainment industry, both as a recording artist and as a radio DJ, TV personality and talk show host. His career in show business actually began in the world of television, when he got a job as a TV anchor in Nashville, TN. One interesting piece of trivia about this phase of Tesh's career is that he often covered the same stories as his fellow young TV anchor Oprah Winfrey, who had a job at a competing TV station in Nashville. From there, he bounced around several other local TV stations before eventually getting a job as the host of tabloid news program Entertainment Tonight. Also during this time he was a sports anchor for various programs on NBC, including the 1992 and 1996 Summer Olympic Games. Tesh has also had success in the field of music, where he has composed several TV theme songs, and recorded albums most of which fall into the adult contemporary genre. As if all this weren't enough, he's also the successful host of The John Tesh Radio Show.
"Roundball Rock": Many people do not realize that John Tesh wrote and composed the theme song to the NBA on NBC, officially titled "Roundball Rock", that was ubiquitous from 1990 to 2002. During a concert John once told the crowd that the NBA on NBC theme was by far the most lucrative song he ever composed, making him more money than everything else he has ever done combined in his career. The hook for the song came to him in a flash while on a plane. To make sure he did not forget the hook, he called himself from the plane and left a voice message where he recited a rough version from start to finish. In 2018, Fox announced it was bringing Roundball Rock back for college basketball.
