A native of Seattle, Wash., Peggy Bunker has traveled coast to coast to pursue her love of television broadcasting. Armed with a degree in broadcasting from the University of Colorado at Boulder, Peggy began her career as a news reporter at ABC in Seattle, where she was the lead reporter for the Emmy-winning documentary, Hot Highs, about teenage drug use.
Looking to cover more entertainment-oriented stories, Peggy headed to Los Angeles to work for MTV's The Real World and Road Rules, while also covering freelance music stories for the network. After working at MTV and anchoring a local news program in Santa Monica, a big break came when she was cast in the first ever Viagra commercial. A New York producer loved her work and gave her a great reason to move to New York: He was looking for a television host back East. Packing up once again, Peggy headed to New York to host Your Internet Show on WLNY-TV.
That led to hosting ABC's SoapCenter, Court TV's Saturday Night Solution, WE's She House and anchoring the WB's national Daily Buzz, live at 6 a.m. daily. Most recently, Peggy has been busy turning the "undateable" into the irresistible on TLC's Date Patrol. Peggy has also ventured into the world of real estate hosting Hidden Potential, HGTV's show revealing the potential in homes for sale that need a little TLC.
