John Curley, Popular Seattle Inspirational Keynoter and Humorist
Host of The Curley and Tom Morning Radio Show KIRO 97.3FM
John Curley hosted King 5 TV's Evening Magazine, the highest-rated regionally produced TV show in the country for fourteen years. Honored with numerous regional Emmy Awards and the Edward R Morrow Award for Excellence in Journalism, it remains a favorite highlighting the people, places and events that make the Cascadia region so special. Audiences love this popular Seattle inspirational keynote speaker!
Through his work at Evening Magazine, John quickly became the most recognized local TV personality and was voted by the readers of Seattle Weekly as their favorite "TV Guy." the show has continued to provide a window on the Northwest and John is an even more familiar face today to many looking for fun and positive stories.
John Curley entertains with self-deprecating stories of his rise and "luck" in life and his career. Audiences declare his keynotes are life-altering. John was never what you would call a scholar. What makes him an exceptionally popular motivational speaker is his ability to tell outrageously funny stories about himself and his implausible career moves. His gift of gab took him from selling bedpans and other glamorous medical devices to the wonderful world of Television.
He's earned numerous awards for his work in the community and in the field of broadcasting. John is fortunate enough to have appeared on stage at the 5th Ave. theatre and unfortunate enough to have appeared in various infomercials. Including the least successful infomercial of all time. When you meet John ask him why Julia Roberts hates him, Tom Hanks fears him, and why Oprah says John tells one of the best stories she has ever heard.
John is often called upon to keynote and emcee large private and public and private events in the Pacific Northwest—including sales conferences, auctions, and galas.
An exceptional fund raising and auction host, John has helped Pacific Northwest organizations raise millions of dollars in funds over the years.
