What's My Line?

Whose Baby? (devisor)


Dublin-born presenter who spent much of his career in the UK. Initially an amateur boxer, he went on commentate for Radio Eireann then the BBC. In January 1964 he made a high-profile defection to ABC, meaning that he had to give up all three of his famous BBC hosting roles (Crackerjack, What's My Line? and surprise biography show This Is Your Life). He went on to host a chat show for ABC and took up the reins of This is Your Life again when it was revived by Thames in 1969, continuing to present it until his death in 1987 (he was replaced by Michael Aspel, as he had been on Crackerjack two decades earlier). He made many appearances on panel games, as both a panellist and host. He won Television Personality of the Year four times and was one of the team that set up Irish Broadcaster RTE


He was born in Dublin's Synge Street, the same street in which playwright George Bernard Shaw was born.

On one edition of What's My Line?, they played a trick on the panel by making Eamonn the mystery guest.
