On 27 September 2017 ABC News reported: In a live show, anything can happen. But Tom Bergeron trusts he can handle it because he has been practicing meditation for decades. The host of ABC's hit dancing competition show ''Dancing With the Stars,'' which kicked off its 25th season this week, said he has been practicing Transcendental Meditation (TM) for over 35 years. It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the field of culture.
Being a longtime meditator, he said, has been key in keeping his cool and ''respond[ing] appropriately'' during a live show in front of a panel of judges, contestants and a studio audience. ''I trust that because of the practice, because of the investment of time and mental energy into being present, that I'm going . . . to somehow know how to roll with whatever happens,'' Bergeron, 62, told ABC's Dan Harris during an interview for his podcast, ''10% Happier.'' . . .
Over the course of his career, Bergeron has hosted several popular shows, including ''America's Funniest Home Videos'' and ''Hollywood Squares.'' His book, ''I'm Hosting as Fast as I Can,'' details his meditation practice with career anecdotes sprinkled throughout. . . .
''[TM] does make you happier. It does make you better able to assess things as they're happening so as to not fly off the handle,'' Bergeron said.
